Primitive Methodist Church: Memorial Plaque

Primitive Methodist Church: Memorial Plaque

The Primitive Methodist Church ceased providing religious services many years ago.  The building was used by the Anglican Church of St. Helen as its church hall from the early 1960’s.  The author attended “Cubs” in this building at this time.  The building has since been demolished and a Spar commercial outlet now occupies the site.  The whereabouts of the Memorial Plaque is unknown.  The plaque commemorated 5 worshipers:

  • John Jackson
  • John Greenwood
  • Thomas H. Vickers
  • Thomas H. Gibson
  • Norman A. Clay

John Greenwood does not appear on a West Auckland war memorial.  He is commemorated on the War Memorial at St. Andrew’s Church, South Church, Bishop Auckland.
