By most village standards, Kirkby-on-Bain was rather slow at commemorating its brave inhabitants, but this must be offset by the fact that the cost of the memorial would have been very high. The price of stained glass had increased by almost 100% since the ending of the war and much hard work would have been done in the raising of the necessary funds.
At the bottom of the main window is placed the following inscription:
To the Glory of God and in Memory of the
following who gave their lives in the Great War 1914-1918.
Capt. Cyril F. Hawley
