Reference
  • A replacement window, faculty obtained in 1949 reads thus – 'To replace the Western most three light window in the North side of the said Church with a Heraldic War Memorial Window together with an inscription in the words and figures following that is to say: In memory of the men and women of the Parish of Ordsall who died in the service of their Country in the War of 1939-45 The window has the badges of the Royal Navy, his(her) Majesty’s army and the Royal Air Force. It also contains the shield and arms of East Retford (two choughs on a field of gold), the shield of All Hallows (Gold crown and scrolls of the Saints on a field of black and white) and the shield of the County of Nottingham (the Major Oak and a river of green). Provided that nothing here in contained shall authorise any interference with the tracery of the said window nor the removal of the iron bars or supports (if any) which may intersect the said window.' The design for this memorial window was on show in church in December 1946, and the estimated cost was £200 plus fixing. At that time there was insufficient funds for the window. The window by Messrs. J.W. Powell was installed in October 1949 and dedicated on 16 October. The lesson at the service was read by Capt. Body, Adjutant at Ranby Camp. Others in attendance included The mayor of East Retford, representatives from 12th Regt. Royal Horse Artillery, the British Legion (with standard bearers), Royal Naval Old Comrades’ Association, and Royal Air Force Association.
