About the memorial: This is a Book of Remembrance in a pupose built case. It is in the North Choir Aisle attached to the rear of the choir stalls. A sample page from the book is displayed. The case is made from oak and there is a backboard with the years 1939 & 1945 carved and painted gold. Above that is an Alababster carving showing Christ being taken down from the cross on which he was crucified. This would appear to be older than the memorial but has been clearly incorporated into the whole design.
