History
2005: The current owner emailed to say they are thinking of asking the Rector of Warrington if the board could be placed in Warrington Parish Church c 1993: The memorial was rescued by its current owner when they visited a house clearance firm in Warrington. The board was due to be taken to the USA where it was to be placed above an unknown bar. The person recognised their Grandfather and Great Uncle's names were on the board so bought it immediately and placed it in their house for safekeeping. 1970: The church was demolished and flats were built on the site. The tablet was believed lost at this time.
