History
Unknown date: In the North porch on the Calvary's panels are inscribed the names of those from the parish who died in the First World War. These were originally carved in the stone panels either side of the memorial but they were replaced with the words 'Our Glorious Dead' so that the memorial marked the fallen in both World Wars. The names of those who died in the Second World War are on the memorial at the west end of the north aisle. Original description: NAMES ON TWO TABLETS, ONE EACH SIDE OF INSCRIPTION [this is no longer accurate]

No
