When it was stolen in 2000, it was later returned by a London antiques dealer who had discovered it in Islington.
This time the 3ft (91cm) statue was stolen on the night of Monday, June 17.
Resident Venetia Barrington, on behalf of the parochial church council (PCC), said: “The statue is very precious to the village firstly because it watches over the names of those on the memorial who lost their lives in the wars and also because it was made and given by the artist Edward Aveling Green in 1921 who was a resident here. It is therefore irreplaceable.”
Local artist Aveling Green (1842-1930) is buried in the graveyard and he donated a number of works to the church including the interior which he painted in a Pre-Raphaelite style.
The theft has been reported to the police and has been logged with Art Loss Register.
