“The altar was formerly in the now demolished Chapel of St. John the Baptist, Pimlico Road. The Reredos is a late addition; its central niche houses a statue of St. John the Baptist, which is a memorial to Thomas Meares, a former church warden (1929), and Hugh Dart, killed in action in the Great War” (“Guide”).
“A very small crucifix hangs at the centre point over te Reredos; his too came from St, John's Chapel. It is the work of Victorian author Margaret Fairless Barber whose book The Roadmender (published under the pseudonym Michael Fairless) became a classic in its day, and is still available and widely read.
