Visitors to the Parish Church may have noted the brass
memorial plaque on the north wall commemorating the death of a soldier -
4462 Private Warren of the King’s Dragoon Guards in South Africa on the
28th. August 1901 and dedicated to him by ‘his officers and comrades’.
We have not been able to find out much more about him except that
his initial was R. and according to the Dragoon Guards records in Cardiff
museum he actually died ‘of disease’ in Bloemfontein. He was awarded The Queen’s South Africa medal with clasps
denominated as Cape Colony and Orange Free-State.
