  • Chris,
    A brief history of this chapel can be found by following this link to Waltham Forest Echo.
    The trowel was probably presented to Mrs Mines on the occasion of laying a foundation stone. The main chapel building was built in 1893, so the presentation in 1902 probably relates to an extension to the original building.
    Generally people laying a foundation stone made a generous donation towards the cost of the building.
