Devonshire Street Congregational Church War Memorial (Lost)

This memorial is considered lost by the Imperial War Museum. However, they only know what they have been told which probably originated here. We think this memorial is one of those stored with Cliffe Castle Museum and looks like the one below. Currently it is listed as 'unknown' with the museum:
