About the memorial: Against the east wall of the north aisle, a wood panelling memorial given by the then local headmaster, Henry Morris, in memory of his son Lt. Charles Geoffrey Noel Morris who was killed on the Somme in October 1916 aged just 22. Charles, who served with the Oxford and Bucks Light Infantry, has no known grave but is remembered on the Thiepval Memorial near the village of Thiepval, Picardy, France. As the war progressed more names were added to the panels and a framed Roll of Honour is incorporated at the bottom left hand. With the outbreak of WW2, the memorial was again employed in recording men lost to this later conflict
