War memorials now at Bishop Street Methodist Church.

Those connected with Bishop Street Methodist Church, who were killed in the 1914-1918 war, are memorialised on a dark brass plaque in the church. In addition, there are three memorial plaques from sister churches, which were moved here when their buildings closed.

Alison Skinner has produced biographical details of the individuals on the Bishop Street plaque, and the names link to their entry on that page.

The plaques themselves contain the following information:-
