Post War Years
In Commemoration of the hospital war effort a "Roll of Honour" inscribed on oak was made in the hospital carpenter's shop and measured some 20 feet long and six feet high. It bears the names of soldiers who died whilst in the Wharncliffe War Hospital, and in the centre panel was a list of the names of 8 members of the asylum staff who lost their lives. The completed panel was erected at the rear of the church but now due to the possible redevelopment of the building, they have been removed.  Pictures supplied by Dean Hill
