‘The War Memorial consists of a large bronze tablet, on an oak base, on which are the names of 334 ‘men from the parish of Heeley who laid down their lives in the Great War.’ The cost was £177.

Other memorials to those who died of wounds are a brass cross above the communion table to Lieut. W.F. Balcher, given by his mother; and a brass alms dish, in memory of Sergeant Thomas Thompson, the gift of his mother.' (no image as yet)
