Memorial Service

A memorial service was held at St Paulís Church on Sunday evening for Lt WT Granger who was a member of the choir and who was recently killed in action. The Rev H Crossland conducted and preached to a large congregation from the words Man giveth up the ghost and where is he? The hymns sung were My God, My Father while I stray, Christ will gather in His own, O Paradise and Onward Christian Soldiers. At the close, the congregation stood whilst the organist, Mr G Freeth, played the dead march from Saul.
