Description
A hand-made Roll in a glazed oak frame, with illuminated lettering and multi-coloured decorative detailing surrounding the list of names which are written in fine calligraphy, with red initial letters to the black-inked names, which appear above a prayer for their rest. At the top of the parchment sheet a gold Latin Cross is seen above the red-inked names of the parish, the initial letters of which are also in gold. There appears to have been some damage due to damp in the past.
