About the memorial: The tenantry of J. Dalton, Esq., of Fillingham castle, have erected, in the churchyard, a handsome Gothic pillar, in memory of his son, Major Dalton, who fell in the battle of Inkerman. The pillar consists of a square shaft, surmounted by a crocketed pinnacle and a cross; the pediment bears the following inscription: There is an obvious disproportion between the pinnacle and the shaft, which gives the former a very cumbersome appearance; the carving is, however, extremely good, and does credit to Mr. Keyworth, of Hull, by whom it was executed Lincolnshire Chronicle 19 October 1855, page 5.

“In memory of Thomas Norcliffe Dalton, aged thirty-five (third son of John Dalton, Esq., of Sleningford Park, Yorkshire, and of Fillingham Castle, Lincolnshire), late Senior Major of the 49th. Major Dalton served with distinction in India, with the 61st, during the Punjaub campaign of 1848—49, taking part in the battles of Jadoolapore, Chillianwallah, and Goojerat, for which he received a medal and two clasps. Following up this career of glory in the Crimea, he fought gallantly at the Alma; and was killed while heading a charge at Inkermann, Nov. 5th, 1854— carrying with him the deep regrets of the brave 49th, and of all who knew him. This monument was erected by the grateful tenantry of John Dalton, Esq.”
