"To the Prince of Peace. In gratitude to our young men who served their country's cause in the Great World-War, this memorial is dedicated by the Parishioners of St. Henry's Church." The names of three men follow, presumably men from the parish. Since no dates follow their names, they seem to have survived the war.
1917-1919

Set close to the church, it is an easy memorial to miss
