Calvary Chapel

CalvaryInside the wrought iron gates on the left hand side of the church is the CALVARY CHAPEL containing the Memorial to those killed in the First World War.

There is the magnificent wooden carving of the Calvary scene on which the events of the passion have been delicately carved around the cross.

The Memorial bears the inscription “In loving memory of Ronald Douglas Davidson”, and research by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission has concluded that he was a soldier killed in the First World War.

Two soldiers of that name fell in the War. One in the Royal Sussex Regiment who died on 11 November 1917 aged 22 years old; the other was an Australian Infantryman who died on 16 September.
