The chancel screen commemorates the altar servers and other worshippers of the church who died in service or were killed in action in World War One.

At St. Peter's Cathedral on Tuesday morning there was a special celebration of Holy Communion.  At St. George's, Goodwood, the chancel screen erected in memory of the altar servers and other communicants of the church, who had given their lives in the war, was blessed by the rector (Rev. Canon Wise) at 11 o clock, when a requiem service took place.
