Remembrance Day United Service at the Free Church 11 November 2018

Roll of Honour 1914-1919

St Jude-on-the-Hill

First World War Memorials

The church has two memorials to the fallen of the First World War.

The longer, begun in late 1916 on the outside of the east end of the church, is now to be found in the south-west porch. 

The other is part of the mural scheme in the Lady Chapel painted by Walter Starmer from 1919. 

All the names on the latter also appear on the former. 

It is not completely clear how the lists relate to each other, although the shorter list appears to be of those who had a closer connection with the parish.

This list combines all the names from both memorials.

Those marked LC appear on both memorials.

Those marked GG are also recorded on the Golders Green War Memorial.

Those marked FC are also recorded on the memorial in the Hampstead Garden Suburb Free Church.

Service details are taken from the records of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission supplemented with (often quite detailed) material from PP the St Jude’s Parish Paper
