The guide to the church notes that the original East Window was destroyed by fire in 1917, and in 1921 a new window was paid for by public subscription as a memorial to the war.

The East Window of This Church is Dedicated
To the Glory of God in Memory of Those who
Fell in the Great War 1914-1918

In the Mexborough and Swinton Times 2 July 1921, p. 2, there is a full report of the unveiling and dedication ceremony which took place on Sunday 26 June 1921. The dedicatory plaque was described, 'enclosed in an oak frame is the Roll of Honour of 157 local men, no matter of what creed or sect, who fell in the war'. The article then lists the names transcribed below. The article also gives the text which appears on the window, at the top, 'Worthy art Thou for Thou was slain and didst purchase unto God men of every tribe' and below, 'These are they which came out of great tribulation and have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb'.

Where further information has been discovered for any of these men it will be linked (look for names underlined and in blue) to a page on this site or to an external site.  In this way we try to avoid duplication and encroaching on the research of other groups and individuals.
