Wonderful church it takes a long time to read all the plaques but well worth it especially when you see the numbers of old boys from Britains schools.

Places like this really helped me to understand the immense impact of WWI on Belgium. To see a church entirely decorated in military motifs and plaques was something I had never experienced before, really brings it home. Mostly British infantry are memorialised here, well worth a visit regardless of your nationality though.

This little church will be mainly of interest to people from the UK as it is almost a place of pilgrimage for many. The plaques around the wall tell of those who have visited over the years and it is easy to see how the Great war touched so many people and continues to do so today.

An Anglican church opened in 1929 in which every item: the plaques on the walls and the chairs; the windows; the banners; and the church furniture including the kneelers are all in memory of a regiment or school whose members or alumni or individual who gave their lives. Moving tribute to the dead and a permanent memorial for their relatives.... More

What a great thing to see and quite unexpected. You can't really do better for free. Such a great place for reflection and quiet prayer.

This is a Church that it would be easy to miss. It is on Elverdingsestraat in Ypres and has a very calm and peaceful atmosphere. All around the walls are memorials to individual soldiers with their history. If you are interested in such things then I'm sure you would not want to miss this Anglican Church built in 1927.

This small but beautiful Chapel is set back off the main square behin the Cloth Hall.This Chapel is well worth a short visit if you are visiting Ypres (Leper) , each row of pews contain cushions of many Regiments and the walls are covered some unique and interesting plaques. Not to be overlooked.

This is a very special little church; not far from the main square but easy to miss. It is essentially a church that is dedicated to the memory of those that were killed in the Ypres salient in WW1. The walls are lined with memorial plaques, all of which are well worth looking at.
