The White Church, Ansdell

This is a remarkable building. More history and more photos to follow. I am not happy with the ones I have taken, but as far as I am aware these are the only ones published of the memorials and pulpit. I feel I will be returning here to update the pictures at some time.

There is more information on these memorials at the War Memorials Archive numbers: 42403 and 42404.

1939 - 1945
IN GRATEFUL MEMORY
OF THOSE ASSOCIATED
WITH THIS CHURCH
WHO MADE THE
SUPREME SACRIFICE
DURING THE
SECOND WORLD WAR
1939 - 1945
AND
IN RECOGNITION OF
THE SERVICES GIVEN
BY OUR MEMBERS
IN
HIS MAJESTY'S FORCES
AND
CIVIL DEFENCE UNITS

The memorial panel designed by
Walter Marsden.
This has four names only:
HARRY BOOTH
HARRY D CROMPTON
ALFRED C. DIXON
T. HERBERT DIXON





Designed by Walter Marsden.
The bottom line says
"VITA NUOVA MCMXVIII"

Not quite sure of the translation - Seems to mean "the new life+1918"
The year is undoubtedly right but the translation is enigmatic considering the content of the image above:
An angel appearing to bear a naked man away. The sun is rising (hopefully) in the background bottom right.
Lovely image though.
