There is a memorial tablet inside the church but it does not list any names.  Down the side of the church hall are various inscribed stones, at least two commemorate men who fell in the First World War.  A newspaper cutting from 1933 reporting the laying of some of the foundation stones can be read on a post relating to another man commemorated here.
