A marble tablet commemorates Gunner John Leslie Roscrow who was killed in France in 1917 during World War One.

The sad news was conveyed by the Rev. W. H. Holtham to Mr. and Mrs. T. Roscrow, of Grant-street, Long Gully, last week, that their eldest son, Gunner John Leslie Roscrow, had been killed in action in France. Gunner Roscrow left with reinforcements early in the year, and had not been long in France. Previous to enlisting he was employed at Mr. J. Warren's drapery establishment, in Hargreaves-street. He was an active member of the Wilson-street Methodist choir. Gunner Roscrow was 24 years of age and was of fine physique. Another younger son of Mr. Roscrow is also on active service.
