About the memorial: The shrine is of oak, with a broad copper cross dividing it into two unequal pairs of panels. The shrine is enclosed in folding door to protect the lettering from the weather. These doors may be thrown back and cottered to display the shrine itself. Originally fixed externally, on the north side of the West door. It is not known when it was moved inside, presumably to protect is from the elements. It was unveiled by the Rector, Rev.E.K.Douglas in the absence, due to illness of Mrs McCalmont, on Saturday 24th March 1917, by which time the last name painted on it would have been William Moden. Subsequent deaths mercifully failed to fill the space remaining.
