See the display in the Sanctuary about the  7 scouts who served in WWI and who diied during or shortly after the war. A brass plaque was placed in the church in July 1920 in their memory with two candle standards. Information about the scouts has been researched by a volunteer. A  framed montage of photos of 6 of the 7 scouts mentioned on the plaque was found in the 1980s and donated to Bodmin Town Museum where it is now on display.

Another display in the church shows postcards from the WWI period.

There is also a visual presentation prepared by Bodmin Town Museum and Cornwall's Regimental Museum showing throughout the day in the church. Bodmin Town Museum's contribution  shows various events and activities in Bodmin during the  WWI period. Cornwall's Regimental Museum's contribution shows many images of the major battles during WWI.
