The size of a memorial

A family with connections to Wesley Methodist Church in Reading wanted to have a memorial for their son who had been killed in action.

18 October 1916

A letter was read from Mr H Moon in which he said Mr E F Collins of South Africa, a former Trustee of Wesley Church, had asked him to request the permission of the Trustees to erect a Brass Tablet in the church to the memory of his wife and his son Douglas, the latter killed in the East African Campaign.

The request was favourably considered by the meeting, & the Secretary was desired to write Mr Moon to that effect, & to say they would like to know the size of the Tablet & proposed inscription of same.
