"In the south wall of the sacrarium is a piscina, whilst above the alter is the handsome reredos of Caen stone, with inlaid gilt mosaics, executed by Italian masons as a memorial to a former vicar and his wife. Mr. and Mrs. C.W. Jones went to Italy to recuperate after a long winter of various illnesses. Whilst there, they were much interested by Venetian mosaics for church decorations. He and his brother put up this handsome reredos in the chancel in memory of their father and mother. The work was carried out by Salviator and his men, who were working on the Albert Memorial."
