St Edward's, Church Hill, Eggbuckland, Plymouth 16 August 2016
Lieutenant Commander Symons died whilst serving at HMS Osprey, part of the Portland Naval Base, and involved in the assessment of anti-submarine warfare helicopters.

St Edward's was built in about 1430, on a religious site dating back to Saxon times. There was further renovation in 1775 which is recorded at the time as having "been hated" by the locals. Extensions on the church are dated 1910 and 1906.
