A report "Nonconformist Chapels in North Kesteven" states

"Wesleyan chapel in Martin built in 1860 which has many features comparable to other chapels dating slightly later to the 1860s and 70s.

It has a yellow gault brick gabled front with three stepped round-arched bays and windows, classical pilasters with moulded stone imposts and a raised gable with a broad verge resting on brackets with a dentil corbel table in the eaves cornice"

"The memorial was unveiled in March 1920 by Mrs E Crowden, who had also donated the site on which the memorial originally stood.

The dedication ceremony began with a service at St Hugh’s Mission Church, conducted by the Rev HCG Robertson after which the congregation walked in procession to the site on the north side of Martin Dales Drove.

At a later date, c1967, the memorial was moved a short distance to the south of the road, outside the village hall"

Saint Hugh's iron mission church, in Martin Dales, was erected 1891 as a Chapel of Ease.

Church Hall visible behind the war memorial. Saint Hugh's church demolished presumably in 1960s (?) around the same time the war memorial was moved to make way for the new Kirkstead Bridge.
