Albert Street Presbyterian Church closed on 31st January 1971 with the congregation joining with the Argyle Place congregation to form West Kirk Presbyterian Church, Shankill Road, Belfast. Recently, war researcher, Mark Ramsey met up with History Hub Ulster researcher Nigel Henderson and passed over the brass war memorial plaque to him. The plaque, having been ‘missing’ for 49 years was today (Monday, 26th October 2020) handed over by Mark Ramsey (right) and Nigel Henderson (left) to the Reverend David Clawson (centre with plaque), West Kirk. A re-dedication service will be held at West Kirk on Remembrance Sunday.
History Hub Ulster chair, Gavin Bamford writes: “It is pleasing that another ‘lost or missing’ war memorial has been found and returned to the church and area where many of the men who died in the Great War worshipped.”
Do you know where any of these Missing Memorials are?
