Manchester Stock Exchange Plaque
« on: September 30, 2014, 06:57:53 PM »
Would anyone be interested in researching the names of the 36 fallen clerks and solicitors of the Manchester Stock Exchange? For details of the brass plaque please see NWM website No.13153. My Grandfather's name-Reginald South (Lancs. Fusilier)-is recorded. It is currently propped up in St.Ann's Church, St. Ann's Square, Manchester. I would like to see the plaque on display. Any ideas? I will post a picture separately as I've had problems posting this.

Originally the plaque was secured with brass cast roses. I have a photocopy of them.

Is there a case to suggest the plaque could find a better home in Ashton because of all the Manchester Rgmnt connections? Otherwise IWM North or other more suitable places than the corner of a church? I'm thinking about metal thieves....
Margaret tells me the Stock Exchange is now a restaurant building owned by G Neville and imagine they didn't want the plaque when they were fitting out.
Who decides these things?

When Gary Neville took over the building he was unaware of the plaque. I was aware of it because I was taken to see it as a child. It appears to have been mislaid when the Stock Exchange moved to London. I believe that there were some IRA bombings in Manchester and thought that the plaque was lost then. It is great that it has surfaced. There is also a smaller Second World War plaque as well, which is said to be in better condition. I am  concerned that both should be preserved. I think that the Stock Exchange still own the WW1 plaque but the CofE are custodians of it. Neville has not ruled it out completely; he says that the restaurant is in a specific phase. I would have thought that the publicity would be positive for him. Hope this background helps.
