The memorial, located in a prominent position on the left hand side wall of the church. It contains the names of those who died and those who served in the "First World War". At the time it was considered this was "The War to end all Wars".
We traditionally hang a poppy wreath and take a minutes silence on Armistice Sunday in November each year. Our minister reads the lines of Lawrence Binyon
"They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
