The plaque on the front wall of the church reads:

The Church of Holyrood erected on this site in 1320 was damaged by enemy action on 30 Nov 1940. Known for centuries as the church of the sailors the ruins have been preserved by the people of Southampton as a memorial and garden of rest. Dedicated to those who served in the Merchant-Navy and lost their lives at sea.
