About the memorial: The memorial is a tablet in the north aisle wall of the chuch opposite the door. The tablet has carved into it a niche with a figure of Christ crucifed on the cross. The lettering initially runs across the tablet straddling the carved figure but the names then are formed into columns on either side of the figure until the final line runs across the tablet under thefigure. The lettering has been carved so that it stands in relief.
