St Bartholomew's WW1 memorial St Bartholomew's Church Gatehouse

Monument: St Bartholomew's WW1 memorial

Inscription

{On a metal frieze, probably brass, a quote from John 10:10.}
"That they might have life"
{On the stone below:}
Hallowed in Christ be the memory of all the gallant men and women who fell in the Great War for the freedom of the world. They shall yet stand before the throne an exceeding great army and in that last muster shall be found these our own beloved.
{A list of 37 names, see Subjects Commemorated.}

Site: St Bartholomew's Church Gatehouse (2 memorials)

EC1, West Smithfield, St Bartholomew's

The restoration of this church was the first major work by Aston Webb. His brother, Edward, being churchwarden at the time was probably just coincidence, don't you think?

Photos of the 2015 "Ceremony Of The Widow’s Sixpence" plus early photos of the site at Spitalfields Life. And more at A London Inheritance.
