About the memorial: The St. Michael window in the south aisle was dedicated in 1922 in memory of all the men from the District who died in World War One. Their names are recorded on the brass plaque beneath the window. Twenty-seven of the names recorded on the plaque do not appear on the War Memorial in Cannock Town Centre. Church documents show that the Loxton family were major contributors in the installation of this window, in memory of another member of their family, Ernest Adshead Dudley Loxton (b. 1889), the nephew of Charles Adshead Loxton (b. 1864). Although Ernest’s name appears both on the brass plaque and on the War Memorial in Cannock Town Centre, he never actually lived in Cannock. When war broke out he was living in Australia and joined the Australian Imperial Force, fighting in Gallipoli, France and Belgium. He was killed on April 24th 1918 and is buried in Caestre Cemetery.
