Condition
History
2006: It is planned to have the names copied onto a piece of wood which will be framed and placed in the church, when money becomes available. It is feared the memorial will become damaged by the weather. The memorial used to be inside the Church. The church became too big for the congregation who moved into the church hall next door, and the church became a furniture shop.
