- King's Shropshire Light Infantry - the side chapel is a memorial to this distinguished regiment, and contains a number of their campaign flags
- Thomas Telford - advised that the previous building was about to fall down, and it did.
- Doric order, Ionic order, and Corinthian order - styles of architecture evident in the building
- John Petty (Anglican Minister) - works here.
