does not appear to be any memorial specifically to World War 1 or
World War 2 in the village. There are two plaques within the church
and a R.A.F. grave in the churchyard. On the north wall of the nave
is an ornate white marble tablet to a man who died in the Crimean
War and below it a brass plaque commemorates a World War 2 casualty.
