From Canon Odoms Memorials of Sheffield -
‘The War Memorial consists of a tablet of Sicilian marble in memory of 120 men of the parish who fell, erected at a cost of £200.’


A Processional Cross made from a shell from the Somme.

The inscription reads -
A thank offering from CD and NA Birks.
Cross made from shell used in the Great War 1918

From Canon Odoms Memorials of Sheffield –
‘In the south aisle are stained windows; one represents the Lord’s Supper; and a ‘Field Communion,’ immediately before going into action – ‘erected by Mr. and Mrs. A.G. Harbord, in memory of their son Lieut. C. Gordon Harbord, 14th York and Lanc. Killed in France. 1 Sept, 1916. Was confirmed and worshipped in this Church.’

Lieut. Harbords name appears on the cross at the top of the window.

This plaque appears on the wall below the window.



From Canon Odoms Memorials of Sheffield –
‘The beautiful brass ‘Angel’ lectern bears the inscription : ‘Presented to S. Chad’s Church. Woodseats, Sheffield, by Mr. and Mrs. Hinckley to the honour and glory of God, in loving memory of their dear son Douglas Roy Hinckley, Lieut. 12th York and Lancaster Regiment, killed in action, France, January 13, 1917. He was an ardent worker in S. Chad’s Mission.’ The carved oak lectern platform was presented by his brothers.’


Also in the church there is a memorial Vestment Chest dedicated to Tom Allford. (Vestments are the cloths used to drape over the alter)
