The church contains a wooden triptych panel titled 'Soldiers and Sailors from the Parish' listing the names of those who served 1914-1918.

A clock and stone tablet, set into the outside wall of the clock tower, commemorates the Second World War. The tablet does not list the names of those who served from the parish. [3]

An Ordnance Survey triangulation point is located somewhere on the church tower. [4]
