World War I Memorial Project

We believe it’s important to honour those whose names are listed on our two WW1 memorials. They lived in the Finchley community and made the ultimate sacrifice in the cause of freedom and peace. We’ve researched the stories of each person – those on the St Paul’s plaque and the St Luke’s Finchley Roll of Honour. Please watch this space as this part of our website is coming soon.


A warm welcome to you!
