About the memorial: Brass plaque, mounted on some brickwork, on a small piece of land adjoining the churchyard. The brickwork once formed part of the parapet of the road bridge over the railway line, next to the entrance of Hill End Farm, home of Francis Collingborn. The brickwork became available when Network Rail modified the bridge during the process of electrification of the line.
