Diana Rowden

On the wall on the south aisle is a poignant memorial to Diana Rowden. She served with the SOE during World War II. Fluent in French she served bravely in occupied France as a courier with the Resistance; she was captured and excuted on 6th July 1944.

Her grandfather had lived in Tilford; her mother moved back here after the war and set up the memorial to remind future generations that 'Patiotism is not enough'.
