Full description

Brine, M. E., 2013, War Memorials, Photo (Website). SDV351333.

1914-1918 War Memorial. A very dignified memorial on a wall within the church - interesting because it is visible from so many seats. Names are carved on a slab of marble which is backed by a sheet of slate. The Memorial records the place where each man died.
A second plaque commemmorates the three men who fell during World War II.
