This window is erected in loving memory of Robert Aubrey Hildyard 2nd Lieut * Bn. The King’s Own Royal Lancaster Regt. Who was killed in action on the Somme Dec. 20th 1916 aged 19 years.

The remains of the cross originally erected over the grace of 2nd Lieut. R. A. Hildyard at Maricourt.
Which twice fell into the hands of the Germans before being finally retaken by the British.
