About the memorial: A stained glass window, depicting the Wise Men presenting their gifts to the baby Jesus, in the East end of the church, with a dark oak plaque on a pillar on the South side of the church. The plaque is rectangular, with a raised rectangular section in the centre, which has an extended carved pediment - a frieze of grapes on the vine beneath an intricate tracery top. Similar tracery tops the outer sections capping the plaque. The dedication and a text beneath the names are elaborately carved, and gilded. In contrast, the names are painted simply in gold. The fact that names for both World Wars appear together on the same board would appear to suggest that the board was re-worked post WW2 - perhaps by the simple expedient of turning the board around so that the WW1 names remain on the rear of the board, with what had been the rear being used as the front. It is not entirely clear from the information and photographs whether the memorial winf=dow is all three or only the one in the middle.
