Recommended Posts

Guest Trefcon

I thought you might like to actually see the memorials and rolls of honour that bear the names of our Great War Fallen. I would like to thank anyone who volunteered images of memorials/rolls of honour i couldn't get to, thank you. If you spot your image and want a credit please let me know. It is not a comprehensive list, i will be adding more images as i go.

If you have any images of memorials or rolls of honour that you dont see here, and you'd like to share them with us, then please do.

First off the Arundle Ex Service mens Club on City road. Although no names on the memorial, it is where the club pays its respect.

St Marys, Bramall Lane.

From Canon Odom’s Memorials of Sheffield;-

‘Opposite is a brass with the inscription : ‘In sacred and ever-loving memory of Laurence Whiteley M.A. Lieut. 5th Black Watch Royal Highlanders, killed at the 3rd Battle of Ypres, in his 33rd year, July 31st, 1917 – ‘Ebrolled in heaven.’ Hebrews X11,23.’

No image of this as yet.

From Canon Odom’s Memorials of Sheffield;-

‘Framed roll of honour with names of 137 members of S. Mary’s Bible Class, of whom 15 gave their lives.’

No image of this either, where is it now ?

From Canon Odom’s Memorials of Sheffield;-

‘In 1918 it was resolved to acquire a large house in Countess Road, with very convenient grounds close to the Church, at a cost of £750, the house to be adapted as a War Memorial Institute, with bowling green, &c., and later on a Memorial Hall to be erected. The first part of the scheme has been carried out at a cost of £1,800, towards which contributions in money, £1,730, and gifts of furniture £200 in value, were received. It is proposed to erect a Memorial Hall on the ground.’

Was the Memorial Hall built ?

From Canon Odom’s Memorials of Sheffield;-

‘In the ante-Church are : (1) A handsome oak frame with three panels containing 1,700 names of parishioners and members of the congregation who served in the Great War, of whom 280 laid down their lives.’

From Canon Odom’s Memorials of Sheffield;-

‘Near to this are two marble tablets, one in memory of ‘Lieut. William John Scott Rundle, D.S.O., 6th Dragoon Guards, died, aged 25 , July 30, 1901, from wounds received in action whilst serving in South Africa’; the other to ‘Lieut. Beaumont Rundle, Australian R.F.A. ,died April 15, 1917, from wounds received in action whilst serving in France.’

Both were sons of George E. Rundle, of New South Wales. These were erected by their aunt, A.M. Rundle, Kenwood, Sheffield.

Dolphin street memorial.

From A newspaper cutting of 20/1/1919, I assume its either the Telegraph or Independent.

HONOURING THE BRAVE

Dolphin street, a more or less insignificant thoroughfare in the East End of Sheffield, has a magnificent war record, the story of which is to be handed down to future generations in a permanent form. Out of a total of number of 48 houses in the street, 55 men have fought in the Great War, and in addition, every female able to work has devoted her time to duties of national importance. Of the 55 who went as soldiers, seven have died, and one is missing. Out of the number, one (Driver Joseph Drake, R.F.A.) has secured the Military Medal for conspicuous bravery at Ypres, when he dressed the wounded during a perfect volcano of shell fire; whilst another soldier, Private T. Elkington, who obtained his ribbon, was killed just after his last leave.

To perpetuate such a wonderful record one of the residents in the street, Mrs. Bagnall, inaugurated a war memorial and roll of honour, and, with the aid of other neighbours and without the slightest assistance from outside sources, has had erected a suitable shrine with the names of those in the street who have served. The interesting ceremony of unveiling the shrine took place on Saturday afternoon, in the presence of a large gathering. Mr. W. Brooks presided, supported by Mr. B. Gregory (headmaster of the Woodbourn Road Council School), who has been closely associated with a number of the boys who participated in the war. The band of the Salvation Army was in attendance and gave selections.

Mr. Gregory said he did not think there was a street in Sheffield that had done so well as to send 55 soldiers out of 48 houses. In his 14 years experience as headmaster at Woodbourn Road, he had had some ‘rough pups’ to handle, but although they had been rough they knew how to live and how to die. They had done their duty without making a song about it.

Mr. Brooks unveiled the memorial, and the proceedings terminated with cheers for Mrs. Bagnall and others who had been associated with the movement.

This is the only 'street shrine' i've come across for Sheffield, i know there are still some still in situ, such as Hull, where there any more in Sheffield ?
