History and Conservation
c1915: The roll was printed by Waterlow & Sons Ltd of London Wall, London. Names were added during the progress of the war.

17 April 1951: The Peak District National Park was designated. The church lies within it.

24 September 1984: The church was listed Grade II, Heritage List for England reference 1334535.

19 November 1990: The Edale Conservation Area was designated. The church lies within it.

5th June, 2013: The memorial was surveyed by Roy Branson and Alan Willmot. Although the memorial was generally in good condition, some of the names had been written with a different ink which had faded significantly and parts of the roll had been affected by damp. These factors had caused a few names or details to become illegible and for some staining to have occurred. The memorial was partially obscured by a freestanding bookcase placed in front of it. A paint shadow on the wall indicated that an adjacent bookcase was previously mounted here so the roll must previously have been located elsewhere.
