Roll of Honour or Book of Remembrance
About the memorial:
The memorial consists of 3 elements. It is an inscribed book which is contained in a barss bound wooden box which stand on a specially made table in the north aisle of the church under the war memorail plaque on the wall. The Book is written on heavy paper and is a modern replacement for the original book which was damaged by water and is held by the church warden off site (there is a small card giving contact details in the church). The replacement was made by David J Newton who taught himself to do illumination and script to make this replica. There are about 10 pages of script inside.The casket has a small brass plaque in the lid saying that "This casket was presented to St Mary's Ch Alne by Laura Elizabeth Alice Gunter widow of the late Major General James Gunter and her son Geoffrey Robert Gunter of Aldwark Manor in this Parish November 11th 1918".
The table is a simple four-legged table with the words "Lest we forget" carved in the top front edge.
