About the memorial: From a photograph having the appearance of a white marble classical style tablet on a dark stone backboard. Pediment at top bearing an unknown Arms with oakleaves behind. Dog tooth edge to pediment roof. At each side a dark stone column with urn surmounting of each capital. The current church is clearly a recent construction, part of a redevelopment of the immediate area. Presumably the memorial was lost when the old church was demolished.
