A new Home for the Memorial

We discovered in 2013 that this tablet has been sat on the site in full view since the church was demolished after the second world war due to the Blitz. We contacted various organisations, including Emmanuels mother church, the Cathedral, but sadly no one wanted to take care of it. After contacting Sheffield City Council and liaising with Judi Sidall, we managed to get the tablet relocated to one of Emmanuels sister churches, St Albans on Chapelwood road, Darnall.
