A photograph shows the Kingswear war memorial board, which is in the form of a tryptich, elaborately carved with two smaller rectangular panels flanking a large central panel with a triangular head and a crucifix in the centre. Below this is the inscription, with the names on the panels either side. It is positioned opposite the entrance, beneath a window which was shortened to allow for the placement of the memorial.
