Two memorials which could only have been in situ for a relatively short time were recorded in the South Aisle in 1839, but have since disappeared:

"Against the north [south?] wall near chancel are the following monuments upon white marble slabs, the following is in the form of a sarcophagus.

"Sacred to the Memory of James Hall of Neasdon in this Parish,

who died on the 6th day of November in the 69th year of his Age."

This gentleman's decease was greatly regretted in consequence of his unremitting kindness and attention to the poor which will be long remembered.

Upon another tablet is as follows:

"Sacred to the memory of Sarah Francis Rosalinda, wife of the Rev.d

Henry Pratt, M.A. (chaplain to the Honourable East India company, and

late curate of this parish) and eldest daughter of James and Sarah Hill

[Hall] of Neasden, who died at Calcutta January 4th 1839, in the 29th year

of her age."
