About the memorial: This record has an element of speculation and I will endeavour to research it further. Unfortunately no-one else was in the church when I was there for me to consult. The window is of plain glass with no lettering or obviously associated plaque. There is a small brass plaque below but it does not refer to the window and is definitely not a war memorial. However, a wooden shelf has been built at the base of the window and a poppy wreath had been placed on it as if this was the recognised place for remembrance within this very small church. The small wooden cross beside the wreath was clearly an act of remembrance but had no specific information on it. If there was no wreath or wooden cross it would not occur to anyone that this is a war memorial.
