Military Records

Michael Peck provides us with: "There are two memorials, one covering both WW1 and WW2 while the second (a window) is for WW1 only - and this appears to be missing one name (Hill) which appears on the roll. There is an associated plaque with the window, this shows some names and so is included. The window shows ranks and arms of service, the roll merely shows ranks and names. Names recorded are:"

  • Pte Bertie Evlyn RUDKIN
  • Pte Ernest Henry RUDKIN
  • Pte John Thomas WYER
  • Pte Richard CHRISTIAN
  • Pte Christopher HILL. 1939 - 1945.
  • Major John HOLDERNESS

Regarding Private HILL: Quoting Rebecca CONDON: "...the name was forgotten originally and added later when the mistake was realised."


  • Pvte Bertie Evlyn RUDKIN Lincs Regiment
  • Pvte Ernest Henry RUDKIN Royal Berkshire Regiment
  • Pvte John Thomas WYER Kings Own Royal Lancashire Regiment
  • Pvte Richard CHRISTIAN Labour Corps

Associated Plaque - The memorial window at the east end of the chancel was designed and executed by Messrs Burlinson and Grylls Window Artists, London.
