About the memorial: Chapel, at the west end of the nave, with oak screens and a roll of honour on vellum in a glazed wooden frame. The Church was closed in 1967 (when built in 1878 it had always been intended as a temporary building with a 25 year life, built of brick and timber) and replaced with a modern building. Unfortunately that building had serious structural issues throughout it's life and was finally closed in 2015 as part of major pastoral re-organisation in Barrow. There is no evidence that there was ever a WW2 memorial. The Chapel was lost in 1967 and the Roll of Honour was not then transferred to the new Church, and is not in the County Archives either.
