About the memorial: A bronze tablet has been placed in the Parish Church at Keddington to the memory of the late Lieut. Geoffrey Staniland, who was killed in action at the front on April 13th whilst serving with the 4th Batt. Lincs. Regt. It was unveiled and dedicated at last Sunday afternoon’s service by the Vicar (Rev. Newton Hellas), Prior to the sermon he proceeded from the chancel to the west end of the nave, with Mr. Hewitt, churchwarden, in attendance, and after performing the ceremony the usual prayers for such occasions were offered. The Vicar preached a very appropriate sermon, taking for his text the words “Conquering and to conquer, from Revelations’, chapter 6, verse 2. In the course of his remarks he made appreciative reference to the great sacrifice by the late Lieut. Staniland in leaving all at the call of duty and laying down his life for his King and Country, The tablet has been fixed o the south wall of the church, above the family pew. At the top there is the regimental crest, below the following inscription, in relief: To the Glory of God and in ever loving memory of Geoffrey Staniland, 4th Batt. Lincs. Regt. who laid down his life for his country at Lindenhoak, in Belgium, on April 13th 1915; aged 34 years. Just as I am, Thy love unknown. Has broken every barrier down; Now to be Thine, yes Thine alone. O Lamb of God, I come. This tablet is erected by his wife and sons. L&NLA 22nd Jan. 1916.
