Reference
  • Wigan Observer, May 1920: Report of Liverpool Consistory Court on proposed memorial tablets, one for the fallen (WMR 62495), and this one for those who returned. Recommended that for those who returned be installed in the church porch, as 'the Church of England has always discountenanced the commemoration, within a church, of living persons.'
