Miss Frances Darlington, who modelled the Police Orphanage War Memorial, a correspondent informs me, was responsible for some wonderful reliefs at St Wilfrid's Church and the Grand Opera House, which have appealed to all lovers of the beautiful, and are worthy the close attention of all ambitious students.
   
  Harrogate Herald - 12th June 1940
The Rev Kenneth Ilderton, Vicar of St Mary the Virgin, Newcastle-on-Tyne, has accepted an invitation to become Vicar of St Winifrid's, Harrogate, in succession to the Ven D M M Bartlett, who has become Archdeacon of Richmond.
Mr Ilderton is the son of the late Rev R M Ilderton, sometime vicar of Wall-on-Tyne, Northumberland. He was educated at Durham School and Oriel College, Oxford, at both of which he was in the cricket elevens. His grandfather was the Rev Thomas Ilderton, of Ilderton, Northumberland.
Trained for the priesthood at Bishop's College, Cheshunt, Mr Ilderton was ordained deacon in 1926 and priest the following year, by the late Bishop Wild, of Newcastle. His first curacy was at Hexham Abbey, and it is interesting to note the similarity in the design of the Abbey and St Wilfrid's, Harrogate. Later he was five years senior curate at St Nicholas Cathedral, Newcastle, under the present Bishop of Knaresborough (the Rt Rev J N Bateman-Champain). For the past five years he has been the vicar of St Mary the Virgin, Rye Hill, Newcastle.
Mr Ilderton has retained a keen interest in sport since his school days. He is an enthusiastic angler - both trout and salmon fishing.
