Holy Trinity Church, Church Road, Heath Town

This listed Victorian church sports an unusual (and possibly unique in Wolverhampton) set of memorial plaques set into the floor near the font at the west end.  The tiles seem to be in an encaustic style.  The churchwarden, David Hudson, suggests that their layout, and the fact that the basic design of each is identical, indicates that they may all have been laid at one time, rather than separately, on or near the dates recorded on them.  The fact that the layout allows for ten plaques and there are only nine reinforces this suggestion and also implies that it was intended to continue the series from time to time as occasion arose.  

Two of the plaques, both to Sunday School teachers, one aged 17 and the other 20.
