Monument: St Anne's Church WW1 Memorial

Inscription

{On the lower base, on the east face:}
To the glory of God and in sacred memory of our glorious dead from this parish who gave their lives in the Great War 1914 - 1918.

{On the lower base, on the west face:}
True love by life, true love by death, is tried.
Live then for England, we for England died.

{Above this lower base there is the main, eight-sided, base with a list of 141 names starting on the east face going clockwise, in a vaguely alphabetical sequence. See the Subjects Commemorated for these names.}

The short verse, in the voice of the fallen, is touching and manages to be uplifting until the last word. It has been used on a number of other World War 1 memorials but we cannot find its author.
