The Brasses in the church are said to be among the finest in Sussex. They are mainly to the Gage family who have lived at Firle for some 500 years. There are also 3 altar tombs in the North East Chapel including effigies in Alabaster of Sir John Gage and his wife Phillipa.
A window designed by John Piper was installed in 1985 in memory of the sixth Viscount Gage who succeeded in 1912 and died in 1982. The window depicts the tree of life in heavenly Jerusalem.
