Roll of Honour

No record of a fixed War Memorial has been located. However, a Roll of Honour was produced in a leather-bound, brass-clasped book entitled ‘Parish History’. The book is housed in an oak casket with a cross inscribed on the lid. Much of the volume is blank with the Roll of Honour towards the back of the book titled:

Parish and Congregational
