There is a photograph of the war memorial in the chapel.

This lists three men not on the Roll of Honour, probably because all died after the war had ended.

Pte. Anthony Mountjoy Royal Welch Fusiliers died 7 July 1920

Pte. William G. Small Machine Gun Corps (Cavalry) died 25 October 1919

Pte. Frederick Throssell Wiltshire Regt. died 24 May 1920 aged 35
