About the memorial: The war memorial is the church clock with an wooden board on the west wall of the north aisle. The board states that the church clock was, "erected to the glory of God, and in memory of the valiant men of this parish, who gloriously laid down their lives for their Country in the Great War 1914-1918." The clock is still presumably in the church tower, and has an external face on the south side. Close to the memorial board are mounted Royal British Legion standards and a framed print of James Clark's "The Great Sacrifice."
