Dart and Francis’ archives give some information on the work to be done.

On 20 July 1921 the following estimate was given:

  1. Oak riddels with carved cornice and cresting.  No.4 angels £130
  2. Oak altar with Sicilian Marble Mensa £80
  3. War Memorial Tablet with Sicilian Marble shelf and no.4 corbels, and inclusive of the crucifix in centre panel and carved raised and gilded letters for all inscriptions £135
