About the memorial: In 2001/02 St Mary's Church was refurbished internally. The opportunity was taken to create a Memorial Area on the west wall of the worship area, in a space where the organ had once stood. The War Memorials installed there consist of: 1. the original WW1 plaque from the former church, which was demolished in 1978. This had been in storage since then. It was cleaned before being affixed to the wall. 2. the re-use of the frame from a family Memorial, commemorating the deaths of the son and daughter of a church benefactor, Sir John Harmood Banner, to carry a board commemorating those who died in WW2. A stone Memorial fixed to the outside West wall of the former church was lost when the building was demolished. 3. a framed box containing the medals awarded to one of the WW1 casualties, Private Harold Beach. A Parishioner had been entrusted with them on the death of his last surviving sister, and presented them to the church for safe-keeping. The IWM Register shows the WW1 and WW2 memorials as separate entities.
