This plaque has been erected and dedicated
To the memory of all those of this district
And parish who died in the service of
Our country either in action or as a result
Of wounds received during one of the
Many conflicts our country has been
Involved in since 1945.

They shall grow not old
as we that are left grow old
age should not weary them
Nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them

2000 A. D.


This page is dedicated to the 10 million victims of World War I and 60 million victims of World War II.
We should always remember the immense grief and loss each war brought to the world.
