History of the Memorial
According to Kelly’s Directory for Lincolnshire 1922 in Great Grimsby “ All Saints is a parish formed in 1898 from the parish of Clee. The church in Heneage Road was erected in 1906 at a cost of £8000. In 1919, a window was placed in the east wall of the church as a memorial to the men of the parish who fell during the Great War 1914 to 1918 designed and erected by Barliston and Gryllis, the cost being raised by subscription amongst parishioners”
The Directory makes no mention of the Roll of Honour, which still exists whilst the window does not, the church having become derelict following a merger with a neighbouring parish, and has been pulled down.
The Roll of Honour was given to the Archives by a parishioner in 1989. It was rebound by the then archive conservator Tim Edwards, using a grant provided by a local Grimsby company. The archives gave a receipt to the Rev M.D. Liles in August 1990 for the Roll of Honour. The memorial is in very good condition and is stored in the archives.
