Inside the church, hung in an obscure corner at the back of the organ, is a Roll of Honour hand-painted on a parchment sheet and mounted within a wooden frame. This states that it was intended to accompany the obelisk in the churchyard and carries the names of those who fell, in the cause of freedom, between 1914 and 1918.
