SW12, Balham High Road, St Mary and St John the Divine

The plaque is at the base of the tower. Our colleague Andrew Behan, has researched all the names on the memorial.

A history time line of the church gives: This chapel opened in 1808 and was extended in 1824, 1882 and  1885. In 1903 the front facing the High Road, with clock tower, belfry, domed baptistery and lobbies, was built and that's what we see today. "1937: The church had a very active Sports & Social Club around this time. 1941: The church only suffered minor damage during World War II. Two incendiaries landed on the north transept roof and the balcony window was destroyed."
