Monument: War memorial - Islington Holy Trinity

Inscription

[On the southern face:}
They whom this memorial commemorates and whose names are recorded on the war shrine now resting in Holy Trinity Church were numbered among those who at the call of king & country left all that was dear to them, endured hardness, faced danger, and finally passed out of sight of men by the path of duty and self-sacrifice giving up their own lives that others might live in freedom.

Let those who come after see to it that their names are not forgotten.

[On the northern face:}
Lest we forget

The inscription "at call of king . . . Live in freedom" comes from a letter sent by King George V to every bereaved family. The Holy Trinity Church mentioned in the inscription is probably the one in nearby Cloudesley Square.
