Description
Wooden Pulpit with carved dedication
Inscription
On November 22nd 1923 a new pulpit in light oak was dedicated to the 130 men of the parish who died in the Great War. Around the hexagonal shaped base, above its stem, were carved the words: To the Glory of God and in Grateful Memory of the Men of the Parish who gave their lives in the Great War 1914-18. We died that England might live. Do thou live that England may not die (This inscription is now to be found at floor level as the stem was removed in 1966.) The pulpit was dedicated by the Bishop of Southwell and unveiled by the Mayor of Nottingham, Alderman J Houston. Originally all the names were to be inscribed on the pulpit, but eventually all those who served (the dead in red letters) were entered in a Roll of Honour volume kept in a glass-topped oak desk which stands by the north wall; it was dedicated in May 1930 by the Rev GH Vine.
