A further two plaques exists on the interior wall of the church commemorating those who fell in World War 1 and World War 2. The names from World War 1 do not necessarily match. For the purposes of this page then name have been combined and the first column indicates whether the person appears on the memorial (M) or the plaque (P) or both. The individual plaques on the church walls have been combined into the list. The names have been sorted into alpahbetcial order for ease of reading.
