About the memorial: The memorial brass is fixed to the west wall of the church, near to the font. The brass measures 460mm x 310mm, and is 1650mm from the floor. The letters are clearly visible listing the names of the men who went from the village to fight the Great War and never came back again. Soon after the war was over, the people of the parish decided to erect the brass in memory of their parishioners who had died in the war. They collected their money together and a brass was purchased from J. Whippel and Son(s), of Exeter, Devon, who designed the memorial. I do not know the cost of the memorial but have discovered that on the day it was dedicated, £2 10 0d, (£2.50p) was collected from the congregation at the service! The brass was unveiled and dedicated by the vicar of St Lawrence, Canon Quirk, who was also vicar of St Nicholas, Great Coates on Sunday May 9th, 1920.
