About the memorial: From the church website (reworded picture to statue, for clarity): "One of the most prominent features of our Parish Church of St. Ignatius ' is the War Memorial, which used to stand at the foot of the Gospel Aisle (and is now in the recess in the West aisle.) Originally it took the form of a carved oak altar enshrining a ceramic statue of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, the original of which is in St. Alphonsus church in Rome. Below the altar is a representation of a burial casket with a commemorative shield in front of it. The choice of this statue as the centre of our War Memorial is most appropriate. The image shows Our Lady already seeing in the distance the terrible instruments of torture awaiting her Infant Son. It thus recalls the agony of the Great War and the generous sacrifice made by 47 out of 150 of our young men in that war (and countless numbers since.) There is a wooden dedication board
