About the memorial: Within the church at the rear of the nave. Sitting upon a wooden stand, a folding shrine-style screen, with two hinged wood doors, which open out to display a painted scene of soldiers on the battlefield looking up into the sky at three angels above them. (This painted scene is behind a perspex cover to prevent further damage to the paintwork.) Below this is a dedication, carved in relief, to 2nd Lieut. R.G.T. Meade, 14th Kings Hussars who died in Mesopotamia on 10 October, 1917. On the inside panel of the doors to the left and right are carved on relief the names of a further 17 men who gave their lives in WW1. It is believed that the names are listed in order of date of death, giving just first and surnames, with no ranks or units except for 2nd Lieut Meade and two others..
