Description
Pulpit with dedicatory brass plaque. The current memorial is a wooden board in a wooden frame with a Latin cross in relief at the centre, and the war years also in relief. The names are inscribed in black in 2 columns, 1 either side of the cross. It is uncertain if the memorial was previously mis-described, or if this was a replacement after the fire of 1978.
