A stained glass window, featuring Saint Mark and Saint George, commemorates those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One.
The right panel depicts the patron Saint of England, St. George and the dragon. Further down, the pennant of St. George bows into the left panel. There is the rose of England above the figures. The cross of love, and the palms of victory rest above the panels. At the base are two angelic figures supporting a scroll above the background of the rising sun. The scroll contains the immortal words of Lawrence Binyon.

GREATER THEY DIE
LOVE HATH WITHOUT
NO MAN ...................
THAN THIS LOVE MIGHT
SAINT MARK`S DAY
SAINT MARK SAINT GEORGE
hallowed in Christ
be the memory of those
who died the death of honour
for the freedom of the World
they shall grow not old as
we that are left grow old
age shall not weary them
nor the years condemn
at the going down of the
Sun and in the morning
we will remember Them
(across both windows)
AMDG This Memorial Window was given by the Parishioners of Camden In proud thanksgiving for those who gave their lives in the Great War which began 1914.
