Inscription

In grateful memory of the men of this church and parish who fell in the Great War, 1914 - 1918, and whose names are recorded within the church. RIP

The Celtic cross is decorated with twisted rope in the arms with 'IHS' at the centre - see the Teddington Cross for more information on this monograph. The rope is appropriate for this 'Church of the High Seas'.
