St Mary`s War Memorial (Rood Screen)Print Page
A rood screen and tablet unveiled as a memorial to those who served in World War One. The tablet was erected after 1919.
The Rood-screen is an example of the impact of this Movement on internal church architecture, often viewed "an open screen, often richly carved and painted, across the entrance to the chancel of a church, extending from floor level to the underside of the rood-beam." The Rood-screen extant within St Mary's was erected after the end of World War One. Most Rood-screens found in the Rockhampton Anglican Diocese were erected as World War One Memorials.
Mr J Reid who made the rood screen for the World War One memorial placed the memorial windows in position for the World War Two memorial .
