Monuments and Memorials

A plaque commemorating Rev John Birchall was to be moved but remained in the church building.

A memorial to Richard Blakeney was also to remain with the property, on the north wall over the vestry door. It read:

Sacred to the memory of
Richd Blakeney esq First Lieu Royal Marines
Father of the respected incumbent of this church
During the late European war he served the country
With acknowledge merit
As a Father he was the most affectionate
As a husband the best
And as a christian of the deepest piety to God
He died XXVI Sept MDCCCXLVIII aged LX years
And his remains repose near this spot in the chancel
Where he worshipped and which he loved

So he bringeth them unto their desired haven
Psalm CVII v XXX

A token of affection from a few sincere friends
