My personal recollection from the late 1960s/early 1970s is that the Minister, possibly Mr. Gill or his successor Mr. Frame from Ulster, mentioned a scrapbook of Great War newspaper cuttings was in a bookcase in Daisy Mount (the Minister's house next to the Churchyard) as well as some photos including those of kilted soldiers (if the scrapbook contained only fatalities this would likely be William Ridehalgh or Fred Ashworth of the Liverpool Scottish)
