The church has undergone substantial renovation in recent years, so I think the memorial may have been moved from its original location. It can now be found on a stairwell to the right of the main entrance, together with a number of other memorials.

Yes it is the same Blackadder.

We'll have to identify if this is the St Andrew's memorial or Blackadder UF memorial since it didn't become St Andrew's Blackadder unil 1988.

Regards

I didn't see another WW1 plaque but it may have been in the main part of the church.
