About the memorial: The Anglican parish church is dedicated to All Saints. The church dates back at least to 1420. The church was restored in 1867 and again in 1874. The church seats about 300. At the April Meeting of All Saints Church Parochial Council in 1921, the question of a church memorial for the fallen soldiers was discussed, then, adjourned to obtain expert advice. In September of that year the Rector, Rev. William Horn, announced that preliminary steps had been taken regarding the memorial and a brass memorial however was purchased some time after. In 1930, the Rector wished to see the War Memorial moved to a better position. In the South Aisle of the church, within the Lady Chapel is a brass plate, which was placed there in 1931, having been moved from its original place. The brass plate is a memorial plaque in memory of the men of the parish who fell in World War 1. The brass plate is affixed to a pillar that supports the wall of the Nave, and is to the left of the Chapel’s altar. The script on the memorial is in the style of Old English, in that the letter “S” is replaced by the letter ”f”. The names on the memorial can be clearly made out without any further explanation sufficient to say that the letter “f” is used where “s” is meant. E.g. Erneft Toplifs means Ernest Topliss and so on.
