Present condition

Restored and placed in St.Mark's Church, Ninebanks 2018.


1. This memorial was placed in the Church after the school was sold. Then the church was closed. On enquiry as to why the plaque had not been placed in the chapel, the reply was “because it had been in the church”.

2. The memorial was rescued by Mr. and Mrs. Myers of Carrshield, who keep it in their garage.

3 Following restoration, the plaque was placed in St.Mark's Church in September 2018 and was viewed by people attending the "All Quiet in West Allen" event in Ninebanks Village Hall.

4 The restoration was carried out by Heritage Consolidation funded by Whitfield with Ninebanks Parochial Council, Allendale Co-operative Society Ltd; The Gannet Co. Inc.; the Sir James Knott Trust and West Allen Parish Council.
