The Centenary III

Although it didn't result in the large-scale alterations that marked the Golden Jubilee in 1909, the centenary did provide an opportunity for some repairs and physical changes to the building. A fund was established, and the £4500 raised was used for a number of changes: wooden panelling was added to the Lady Chapel (above) and new statues were put in the Cathedral.

Four new reliquaries (pictured) were bought for the high altar, along with a new thurible. Other furnishings and fittings inside the church were restored or replaced to mark the anniversary.
