About the memorial: Situated in the porch of the church with a commemorative plaque beneath. Five stained glass windows: Two are illustrated with etchings depicting examples of the various aircraft that flew out of Jurby. These flank a central one featuring the angel Michael. A fourth is on the rear wall of the porch with a dedication script. The fifth is in the door between the porch and the church and features the RAF crest. The windows (with the probably exception of the RAF crest on the door to the church) were designed by J.P. Phillips to replace the originals that were badly cracked due to subsidence. They were made by a specialist firm in Stockport and installed by Chase Construction of Ramsey. A plaque beneath the windows refers mainly to the construction of the porch in 1940 (utilising labor from the RAF station) hence the reason for the windows having an RAF theme. All those who served at RAF Jurby, in wartime and peacetime, were remembered at a special service when the new windows were dedicated. The service was held by the Reverend Rod Geddes, with Lieutenant Governor Ian Macfadyen and his wife Sally present.

Tablet: 'The re-roofing of this / church together with / the erection of this / porch & other work / was carried out in the / year of our Lord 1940' Inscription on rear window: 'If you are able / to save for them a place / inside of you / And save one backward glance / when you are leaving / for places they can / no longer go. / Be not ashamed to say / you loved them / though you may / or may not have always. / Take what they have left / and what they taught you / with their dying / and keep it with your own / And in that time / when men decide to feel safe, / take one moment to embrace / those gentle heroes / you left behind'
