War Memorial

Inscription

St Peter's Mission House
Built 1883 - destroyed by enemy bomb 1940 - rebuilt 1950.
RIP Sister Catherine Elizabeth S.C. 15.10.40

Site: St Peter's London Docks (3 memorials)

E1, Wapping Lane

The WW2 plaque is very high up on the wall behind the arches and can only be read from a zoomed-in photo.

The naming is confusing. This religious setup originated from St George's-in-the-East and so was initially known as St George's Mission. But when they built their own church, St Peter's, the mission became St Peter's Mission.
