About the memorial: The memorial comprises four large sandstone tablets with an upright oblong one at the top near the middle and three horizontal oblong ones in a line below. The upper tablet has at its centre a gothic arch with acanthus leaves in relief in the spandrels and the inscription in gilded upright decorative lettering. To each side are decorative pilasters of varying section, containing empty niches on their faces. Above is a horizontal frieze with moulded edges and decorative gilded lettering flanked by the projecting pilasters terminating in crocketted finials. Between the finials is a panel carved in high relief and bearing a battlefield scene with depictions of a WW1 tank, an artillery piece and an aircraft, with a warship on the sea in the background, and at the head is a gilded Latin cross on a shield. At the foot of this tablet is a cornice with two brackets and a further inscription between them. The three lower panels are all of similar design but different widths, the central one being longest and the right one the shortest. All have a moulded cornice at the top and raised borders on the other three sides, and all bear the names incised in elaborate gothic lettering, in fair condition but somewhat difficult to read. They are on the north wall of the nave.
