Memorial History
St Anne’s Church of Ireland is located in Church Street, Dungannon, 100 metres from the main Square of the town. The marble Tablet and stained glass Memorial Window lie in the east transept of the Church.
The Table and Window were unveiled in a ceremony on Sunday 19th March 1922. Below are the details of that ceremony.
From the Tyrone Courier and Dungannon News dated Thursday 23 March 1922 : War Memorial Unveiled and Dedicated. Ceremony Performed by Primate
A solemn and impressive ceremony took place in St Anne’s Parish Church on Sunday when a War Memorial Window and Tablets were unveiled and dedicated by his Grace the Lord Primate.
A large turnout of ex-service men paraded at the Royal School grounds, and also the Royal School and Church troops of Boy Scouts; all under the command of Major T G H Dickson. M.C., and marched in procession to the Church. The service opened with the singing of the hymn ‘How Bright Those Glorious Spirits Shine’, and the special lessons were read by Rev Canon McEndoo, M.A., After the singing of the Psalms 23 and 46, Morning Prayer to third Collect was said, and then his Grace performed the unveiling of the beautiful marble Tablet and dedicated it and the handsome stained glass Memorial Window in the east transept of the Church.
The dedication prayers were:-
bullet ‘Grant O Lord, that the example of Thy servants whom we remember before Thee here today, and of the many brave men who laid down their lives in the service of their country, and for the deliverance of the world from cruelly and wrong, may stir us up to serve Thee with unfailing fidelity. Let the remembrance of their sacrifices abide with us, and with the generations to come, as an inspiration to all noble living. Let their glad surrender of selfish ease and their unflinching courage in danger strengthen us, for all steadfast endurance that faithful to the end, we may, with them, receive the Crown of life which Thou hast promised, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen’
bullet ‘Comfort, O Lord, we pray Thee, all who mourn the loss of those who are near and dear to them. Be with them in sorrow; support them in Thy love; teach them to rest and lean in Thee; give them faith to look beyond the troubles of this present time, and to know that neither life nor death can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ our Lord, to whom with the Father and the Holy Ghost be all honour and glory for ever. Amen.’
bullet ‘O Lord thou God of righteousness we thank Thee for the glorious victory which of Thy mercy Thou didst grant to us and to our allies. Comfort, we beseech Thee, the wearied world, and especially we pray for our troubled country, that we may be guided to a perfect understanding of Thy will and peace in Thee. This we ask in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.’
bullet ‘Now to the King eternal, immortal invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen’
At the conclusion of the ceremony, during which the congregation remained standing, the Last Post and Reveille was sounded by ex-service men, S Hodgett and W Lecky. The anthem ‘What are these that are arrayed in white robes’ was then effectively rendered. After the singing of the hymn ‘For all Thy Saints’, Chopin’s ‘Funeral March’ was played on the organ by Miss Farrell.
His Grace preached a touching sermon based on the text ‘Trust ye in the Lord for ever, for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength’, Isaiah 26, verse 4. He referred to the splendid response made by the members of that Church to the call of duty in the Great War. They had sent many volunteers, both men and women to help in the cause of humanity and civilisation. The tablet, which had just been unveiled, contained the name of one heroic nurse, Alicia Watt, Dungannon, who died in the service of her country. Thirty nine men of the parish who went forth to the war made the supreme sacrifice and their names have been inscribed on the tablet unveiled that morning, and the beautiful memorial window will perpetuate their memory for succeeding generations. The tablet at the main entrance contained 150 names of the men and women of the congregation who had risked their all in the cause of righteousness.
The plaque lists 39 casualties. On the the top of the tablet containing the names of the fallen is the following inscription:-
‘The adjoining window and this tablet were erected by the Parishioners in honoured remembrance of the members of St Anne’s Church who gave their lives for King and Country in the Great War 1914-1919’.
The names are listed above.
The inscription at the bottom of the plaque reads:
“Be thou faithful onto death and I will give thee a crown of life”
The Memorial Window is of very artistic design, and is a fine work of art. The word on the scroll on the top are ‘Holy Holy Lord God Almighty’
The lower part typifies the Resurrection by the Angel at the tomb making the announcement to the three Marys, and the inscription is ‘He is not here, he is risen.’
The subject of the upper part of the window is entitled Te Deum, and represents Christ the King seated in majesty surrounded by adoring hosts, and underneath is inscribed ‘We praise Thee O God, We acknowledge Thee to be the Lord’
Along the bottom of the window is inscribed:
‘This window is dedicated to the Glory of God and in sacred memory of these who worshipped here, and at the call of duty made the great sacrifice in the cause of freedom. 1914-1919.’
The work was executed by Messrs. A L Moore and Son, ecclesiastical Art Decorators, St Augustine House, 80 Southampton Row, London.
The following names are the names on the tablet at the man entrance door: ‘1914-1919 Drumglass Parish Church Roll of Honour’
