True Love By Life

True Love by Death

is Tried

Live thou for England

We for England Died


Sons of this place let this of you be said

That you who live are worthy of your dead

These gave their lives that you who live may reap

A richer harvest er you fall asleep


To the Glory of God

And in ever grateful

Memory of the men

Of this parish who

Gave their lives for

Their country in the Great War 1914 -1919
