The brass memorial on the south east wall of the church was given in 1845 by the Roxburghe Society, replacing one of wood which had decayed.

The memorial window over the west door was installed in 1882 and the glass is by Messrs Clayton & Bell. It was subscribed for by American donors led by J.T. Lord.
