About the memorial: A six-light stained glass window in a shallow pointed-arch opening. The lights comprise three principal lights which are approximately lancet-shaped but with triangular-arch heads and three lower square lights. The lights are separated by straight chamfered mullions and transoms which also create two small triangular tracery panes at the head. The centre light contains a depiction of St George wearing red and blue robes over armour, holding a shield with the red cross on it and bearing a staff displaying a pennant, also with the cross of St George on it. The left light contains an image of a WW1 soldier in steel helmet and infantry uniform, standing with reversed arms. The right light contains an image of a nurse in a blue dress with white uniform over bearing a gold cross on the bib. She is wearing a Red Cross armband and holding a bandage. The scene behind the figures is of green countryside with trees and a stone castle near the centre, with a blue cloudy sky. The lower left panel has a red and gold badge of the Sherwood Foresters Regiment and the lower right panel has a red white and gold badge of the Derbyshire Yeomanry. The central lower panel contains a bound laurel wreath overlain by a scroll bearing the inscription on sentence case Gothic lettering. It is in the west wall of the nave.
