Description
The memorial is a slate plaque on the west inside face of the lychgate wall. The lychgate as a whole is a memorial and was built of timbers from old naval ships. In 2014 a simple paper timeline was added in the Church, on the north wall. This gives regiments and dates of death for the 10 Ainstable men, and also names, regiments and dates of death for 9 Armathwaite Men- for whom there is no local war memorial.
