Second World War addition supervised by L.C.Evetts


1. Faculty allowed . . . ”to add to the existing memorial on the West wall of the said church the names of the men of this church and Parish who gave their lives in the War 1939-1945 in such manner that the names of the men who gave their lives in the 1914-1918 War are shown on the left half of the panel and those who gave their lives in the 1939-1945 War are shown on the right half . . . ”
As part of this change the WW1 names were repainted to a smaller font – on the left, and with better quality paint than originally. The loss of the MacDonald Gill lettering was regretted but it had deteriorated due to the paint quality.
