Description
Two similar framed and glazed rolls of honour for WW1 and WW2. Both are rectangular , the longer axis vertical . The dedication is at the top in purple and silver with a latin cross in the centre and the last part of the dedication at the base . The names are set out in four columns in black lettering with the columns separated by single purple lines . The dates of the conflict commemorated are printed in black on the WW1 version , no dates are printed on the WW2 version . nb It is likely that these Rolls of Honour were not specific to this Parish but were printed as blank documents with the names to be entered by hand . The name of the Parish does not appear and the conflict dates are a later addition.
