Inscription
(Original unknown) Replacement scroll and wall plaque: (names) AND FIVE KNOWN UNTO GOD/ GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN THAN THIS THAT A MAN LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS Project 72 information sheet: Project 72/ Project 72 was a community based project aimed at tracking down the names/ of the 72 children who attended William Alvey School and then went on to fight/ and tragically die for their country inWW1. Their names were originally written on/ a special scroll that the local paper, the 'Sleaford Journal', report was unveiled at/ William Alvey School on May 24th 1922 (Empire Day) by the Vicar of Sleaford./ Over the ensuing years the scroll was lost. The current Alvey children cross/ referenced Church and Civic monuments with our old school registers. We found/ almost all the names (names) sic and commisioned a permanent memorial at the front/ of the school and a replacement scroll that we have given to St Dents' Church. The/ project will also form part of a larger art trail 'When in Sleaford' which is being/ put together by ArtsNK and funded by a grant from the Mukherjee Brothers Trust,/ and the Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant./ S.
