To the eternal memory of the men of GREAT WELNETHAM who died in the service of their country
Thirteen in the Great War of 1914-1918 and four in 1939-1945

Inside the Church of St. Thomas a Becket in Great Welnetham, hanging on the wall is a glazed, hand written roll of honour commemorating those from the village who fell in the two World Wars

There is also the East window, a stained window, designed by Eleanor Brickdale and made by Burlison and Grylis. A four light window, the four lights depict (from the left)David and Goliath, St. George, St.Nicholas and Joan of Arc. Each light has at the bottom a scene from their lives. There is a dedication under these are, on the left and right, panes with the dedication.
At the top of the window is an image of the head of Christ bedecked with vines.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them.
