WAKEFIELD, West Yorkshire – Cathedral Church of All Saints. 

War Memorial 1919

In a letter dated 11 July 1919, to a Mr. Kay about a contract at St. Sampson, York, Fellowes Prynne said:

I shall be shortly visiting Wakefield as I am asked to undertake the design for the War Memorial in the Cathedral; and if it would be any help to you, I might arrange to call at York and go into some details of the proposed work at St. Sampson.

No mention is made of this War Memorial in the Cathedral guidebook, or anywhere else I have searched, so I can only conclude that this magnificent design was never carried out.

The image shows the design for the War Memorial, as published in Examples of Modern Architecture.  It took up the full frontispiece page of the publication, which was larger than the modern A3 size.
