Full description

The Second World War memorial hymn board at Offwell was placed, despite its utilitarian function, in close spatial relationship to the two existing First World War memorials in the church. The location is therefore in a slightly impractical position to fulfil its functional purpose for the congregation, but it affords the memorial a large sacred space and a high visibility from the entrance to the church.
