About the memorial: This tablet is inside St Nicholas's Church, Old Marston on the west wall of the south aisle. It is a white marble tablet with engraved and blackened lettering mounted on a black-veined marble tablet. It commemorates twelve men of Old Marston who died in the First World War. The tablet was unveiled near the end of 1919, and appears in a photograph published in the Oxford Journal Illustrated on 17 December 1919 (p.7). After the Second World War an extension was made to the lower side of both the black and the white tablet (with a visible join) to allow the names of the three men who died in the Second World War to be added.
