Highgate United Reform Church war memorial

Inscription

{The north face of the plinth is inscribed as follows:}
To the glory of God and in loving memory of the men who gave their lives in the Great War, 1914 - 1919.
{The other 3 faces list, alphabetically, 27 names which you can see by clicking on Subjects Commemorated.}

2015: We read that the cross is being refurbished.  13 or 14 of these names are also on the nearby Highgate Camp memorial.  Two of the names were the teachers who started the camp and two were sons of former ministers.  But we don't know which ones.
