Description
Pale marble plaque with grey streaks. At the bottom edge is a protruding lip or ledge, at the top a triangular pediment, also a little raised. The memorial commemorates members of the Church who fell in WW1 but has no names. In the top section is a monogram in a shield shape which could be FCC - the church used to be called the Farrar Street Congregational Church, but changed its name in the 1970s.
