The St Luke`s Warriors` Chapel and memorial windows commemorate those who served in both World Wars.

In 1945 the parish agreed to complete the eastern end of the building as a war memorial and the foundation stone of these extensions was laid in 1947. A new design was commissioned from Charles Beresford Marks, which had included the northern transept and chancel. The extensions were built in stages and completed in 1959 and dedicated by Archbishop Halse. At this time foundations were laid for the southern transept and this area is yet to be completed.
