About the memorial: This memorial can be found just as you enter the church by the door in the south wall. Having entered, then go to the right and walk a short distance along the south aisle. There you will see a Roll of Honour made of paper, which is inside a wooden frame. It measures 630mm x 560mm and is fixed onto the wall of the church 1730mm from the floor. The paper has been torn at some point and is handwritten in lovely colours. The writing is in script, in italics, with the forename and surname of those who went to war listed in two columns. Beside 4 of the names, as if they were added after the roll was compiled, is the word “killed” and the date is given, month and year. The words are in a much smaller print and in capitals, in contrast to the script of the list of names. One of the persons, Robert Ward, has the words Military medal added in very small print. I do not have any idea as to when this list of names was compiled, or when it was erected in the church.
