When part of the ICI works off Talbot Road was being demolished for housing the above plaque hung in the Sports and Socail club. It was removed to St Marys grave yard... where it lies today.. I had heard story's of Horace Wigley when I was a child, it seems he was related to my dad.. so it was nice to come across this Memorial Stone whilst out for a stroll.
