Description
Large, wall mounted, portrait orientated, square-headed stone memorial. Within a central arch-headed recess, the upper area bears an incised inscription. Below, on the left hand side, stands a red cloaked and silver armour-clad figure of St. George, holding the top of a floor standing shield with his left hand. The shield displays, the red cross on a white background, colours of St. George. To the right of the figure are two columns of incised names. All names and inscriptions infilled with blue enamel paint. A decorative blue with gold-edged coloured band encloses the arched recess. Below the banding at the bottom of the memorial is a further incised inscription. Above the banding is a protruding gabled moulding, also decorated in blue with a gold coloured edging.
