Church hall memorials
Church hall memorials
The church hall behind the Baptist church (built as a school room) includes no less than 3 foundation stones, dating to 1891.

It is interesting that the town worthies are described here as 'Alderman'. The Municipal Reform Act 1835, defined that municipal borough corporations consisted of councillors and aldermen. Bourne would not have had Aldermen, but the centre stone is for William Wherry, a leading light in Bourne, who was entitled to the honorific as a county Alderman. The right hand stone is for Gilbert White, born in the town, who was an Alderman of Norwich at the time.
