1. Margaret Hedley writes:

“In 1915, the Constitutional Club here in Wheatley Hill provided an illuminated scroll of members who enlisted to the war. Over the years, it disappeared, probably thrown out during a refurbishment.

Anyway, I found details of the scroll in one of our mining books that we published some time ago and on the Constitutional Club national website found a picture of the design used - it looks like the central headquarters provided these scrolls to clubs that wanted them and as a result, we have re-created the scroll and presented one to our local Constitutional Club which is hanging in their premises now and we have one in the Wheatley Hill Heritage Centre.”

2. This memorial sounds identical to the one unveiled in August 1915 in the Conservative Club. The names are the same, wxcept that one newspaper includes "George Hall" and the other includes "George Hull".
