This framed record of service is the most detailed that I have ever seen in a church. The headings are Name; Rank; Regiment; Duration of Service; Fronts on which Served and Remarks.

I realise that, even though I have tried to photograph it in sections, because of reflections etc it will be difficult to raed so I do propose to transcribe it.

I thought that I might type up this Record of Service as a spreadsheet and scan or photograph it and paste it here but it all seems a bit long-winded so I've decided to type the transcription in as a post and hope that this will be acceptable. The information given is in this order: NAME, RANK, REGIMENT, DURATION OF SERVICE, FRONTS ON WHICH SERVED, and REMARKS. Some of these fields are blank for some of the entries and I have tried to transcribe them exactly as they appear on the scroll. If there are any queries I will be happy to try to clear them up.
