Waiting in the Early Post-War Years

During the Second World War, work on the Cathedral stopped. For some ten years afterwards little progress was made due to a shortage of money and building materials. The Cathedral stood empty. 

However, from 1947 onwards, regular services were held in the Crypt Chapel which is now used as the Choir practice room.
