From Canon Odoms Memorials of Sheffield –


‘The south transcept was in 1920 fitted up as a War Memorial Chapel at a cost of £573, a fine carved oak screen dividing it from the nave. On the left side is a large oak tablet with the inscription : ‘To the glory of God and in holy and loving memory of those whose names are inscribed below who died in the Great War 1914-1919 that we might live – ‘So he passed over and all the trumpets sounded for him on the other side,’ The names number 106. On the right side is another very large oak tablet bearing the names of the parishioners who returned home, having, ‘obeyed the call of King and country and served on land, sea, and air in the Great War.’ Below is text : ‘O God, Thou strength of my health; Thou hast covered my head in the day of battle,’

The three-light window of the Chapel has figures of S. Michael, S. Gabriel, and S. Uriel, presented by Mrs. K. Jeffery in memory of her husband.’

In the south aisle is a two-light window – S. James : Gethsemane – inscribed, ‘To the glory of God and in memory of James Schofield, R.F.A., who fell in action in Flanders on S. James’ Day, 1917. ‘The souls of the righteous are in the hands of God. They shall not grow old.’ It was presented by his wife.’
