Joseph Syddall designed the Memorials for Old Whittington and Dronfield and I have been lucky enough  to see the original pencil drawing by Joseph Syddall of his design for  Old Whittington. I found an extra surprise when I visited Chesterfield Museum as they also have a photograph of the war Memorial when it was originally dedicated together with an Order of Service from the Unveiling and Dedication ceremony on February 20th 1921.

I was allowed to take photographs of these items and these can be seen on https://oldwhittingtonops.com/old-whittington-war-memorials/ orhttps://oldwhittingtonops.com/joseph-syddall/
