I loved this church - a perfect memorial

Came across St George's after visiting the cathedral. St George's was by far the better experience if you are a UK traveller wishing to pay homage. Unassuming, but lovely memorial.

This is a beautiful little Church that is tied physically and emotionally to Ieper. If you consider that Ieper was blown to bits during WW1 then it is all the more wonderful that this little Church was built. What a wonderful little memorial to the fallen built by those who survived. Please take the time to visit and pay your... More

This is a little English gem in the centre of Ypres. It is free to enter, but you feel you are in rural England. Lots of flags and memorial plaques and cushons to look at. However, it is also church, so there are also setvices. You will be made to feel most welcome. If you can, go to a service.

A visit to Ypres to commemorate those that lost their lives which was brought home by a most moving service in Saint George's Church

This is a truly memorable little church near the cathedral. Many memorial plaques from schools and divisions around the whole church, all very moving.

Unlike any other church I have seen, this gives itself totally to those who passed through the Ypres Salient, whether they survived or not. It does however, display brass plaques to a number of individuals that gave their lives, and to a number of Colleges/ Schools that former pupils who 'fell' attended. Very colourful, respective and thought provoking.

St George is the traditional 'garrison' church name at all British bases - and this was built 9 years after the end and is full of plaques of pride, sorrow, and respect by survivors. Even now there are school and individual memories still being mounted on the walls. Very British and worth a look, or attend a service!
