About the memorial: Undeniably a work of art, the memorial to those that fell takes the form of a stained glass window in the north transept. This has been completed by a London firm, but the whole of the designs were executed under the direction of Mrs. J. Beanland, who has been responsible for what may possible be one of the finest memorial windows in the district. All preliminary work has been ably performed by a Committee under the presidency of the Vicar (Ren. J. Beanland, M.A.) The tracey shows the arms of the Allies-England, France, Belgium, United States, Serbia, and Italy. The centre light shows ”Christ and the Good Centurion,” with the words “I have not found so great faith not in all Israel.” The figure on the left represents “Peace”, while beneath is “The Comrade in White,” showing Christ with a wounded soldier and an ambulance man, with the inscription, “I am with you always.” On the right panel is “Victory” and beneath, “The Supreme Sacrifice,” with the inscription “Greater love hath no man.”
