There are two war memorials and one Roll of Honour within the church of St Mary and All Saints, Walesby. The Roll of Honour is for World War 1 and is in the form of a wall mounted, famed and glazed, Roll of Honour with elaborate decoration on the letters of the dedication; the names are in black and red link, in two columns with a red patterned border. The World War 1 memorial is in the form of a rectangular, wall mounted, marble tablet with black lettering on the west nave wall. It has a fine black border and moulded edges and corners with the quotation in italics. There are three names listed. It was unveiled in April 1921 and details can be found in the Market Rasen Mail 23rd April 1921. The World War 2 memorial takes the form of a stained glass window in the centre light of the plain glass west window. The stained glass depicts a cross with the badges of the three services at the top. The dates of the war are inscribed in a laurel wreath at the foot of the cross. The main inscription is across the foot of the window. There is one man listed.
