Wooden cross hanging in Woodlawn Church

Woodlawn Church, Killaan, Galway

Frederic Sydney Trench was buried in Mailly Wood Commonwealth Cemetery, Mailly-Maillet France. A wooden cross originally marked his grave. When the wooden cross was replaced by a gravestone it was brought back to Woodlawn. The wooden cross now hangs in the Church. A stain glass window was also erected at the church by his parents in his memory. It was produced by Heaton, Butler & Bayne, London. Frederic is one of many from the area who fought in World War One and the Battle of the Somme. A Roll of Honour dedicated to worshipers in Woodlawn hangs inside the door of Woodlawn Church.
