The Calvary Cross is being cleaned up and restored by local craftsmen and will look much better when it goes back up.
This Cross was originally on the exterior of the Church in the Southend and then moved tot he front garden of the New Street Church.
It was originally given by the Palairet family probably in the 1930s.
Once it was taken down and cleaned we found the original craftsman's name CV Gertner of Hereford.
Charles Victor Gertner was born in 1881 and was active from 1900 - 1940 as a wood sculpture. His father was born in Rio de Janeiro.
We are hoping to find out more about him.
