Monthly editions which include: War Obituaries, Gallantry Awards, Roll of Honour (total made up of: serving/training/sick, KIA, missing, returned to civil life, POW), family and parish war memorials. Church News, July 1919: War Memorial. 'A general meeting of parishioners will be held on Thursday July 10th [1919] at 7.30pm in the church to decide upon the parish war memorial. It is proposed that all the names of the fallen shall be inscribed. The matter being of so great importance it is urged that there may be a really representative gathering of parishioners. Will all our readers help by making all their neighbours in the parish, and to All Saints people resident outside the parish. It is of great consequence that we should come to a speedy decision as otherwise there may be a delay in getting the order carried out. Relatives of the fallen are specially invited as we naturally wish that they should have a large voice in the decision. The parochial council will put their recommendations before the meeting. The final decision will rest with the meeting.' Church News, August 1919: The Vicar’s Letter. 'My Dear People. The Easter Vestry Meeting. It will be remembered, instructed the Parochial Council to consider, and to submit to a meeting of Parishioners plans for a Memorial to those who have laid down their lives in the war. The sequel to this was the meeting of Parishioners, to which all relatives of the fallen were individually invited. The meeting unanimously decided upon a scheme drawn up by Mr Gill [architect] and to be carried out by Messrs Bridgman of Lichfield. The meeting further resolved that the War memorial Committee should consist of the Parochial Council, together with four representative of the relatives, who were duly elected.The principles embodied in the scheme are as follows: That the Memorial be worthy of the great sacrifice made; that it be inside the Church to ensure its protection through the centuries, from the destructive influences of the weather; that it be in the main body of the Church and in full view of anyone entering the building; that it be of such a nature as to appeal to all, whatever their religious opinions; and that it contain the names of all who died in the war, and in no sense be limited to members of the Church of England. The Memorial will consist of a massive oak screen in the South aisle, two feet in front of the organ pipes. It will be surrounded by a carved figure of St George and the Dragon, St George being the Patron Saint of England and of soldiers, and the victory over the dragon typifying the victory of Right over Wrong. The three central lower panels of this screen will be of alabaster; two containing the lists of the names, to the number of about 140, and the central one being carved with the Soldier’s Cross of Sacrifice and an inscription. In front of the screen will be set up a massive “Stone of Remembrance” on which may be placed flowers or wreaths to the memory of the fallen. The Stone of Remembrance and the Soldier’s Cross of Sacrifice are being set up in every British military cemetery overseas by the British Government, and their inclusion in our Memorial brings it into close relation with the actual resting place of our heroic and beloved departed. The Memorial Committee will shortly issue a general appeal to all parishioners. At the time of writing, a few days after the scheme was adopted, we have already received more than £100 towards the estimated cost of £600. The plans and the provision list of names will be put in the Baptistery, at the West end of the Church, and all parishioners are invited to come to the Church, open during the hours of daylight, to see for themselves the architect’s drawings, and also to make sure that the list of names is accurate and complete. The Parochial Conference is just beginning at the time of writing. Its conclusions will in due course be made known and acted upon. Yours most sincerely H Lovell Clarke.'
