Christ Church, Totland does not appear to be Listed by Historic England.
The lychgate is made from timbers salvaged from HMS Thunderer. This is marked by a bronze plaque.
It was erected in memory of Frederick Wildman Burnett (died 1904) by his widow Mrs H W Burnett on the 10th March 1906.
Their son, Francis Ainger Burnett, who died in 1892 in a typhoon, is commemorated by a stained glass window in the church.

There is some doubt as to whether the timbers were actually from HMS Thunderer.
An alternative theory is that they were from another hulk in Portsmouth.
