1. This Book of Remembrance was commissioned in order to preserve the names which were on the cross formerly in St. Lawrence's Churchyard. See B95.09.

2. It was placed in St. Michael's. but when the cross was moved to St. Silas', and because St. Michael's is part of the area to be redeveloped, it was considered better to place the book at the same church as the cross.

3. It is hoped to be able to put the book into a display case in due course.
