It does what it says, the walls are covered in brass plaques remembering everyone from Churchill to the old boys from many schools. It is interesting, but maybe not for everybody

We popped into St George's Memorial Church during a trip to the area from the cruise ship. This was a wonderful little place - with clearly so many wonderful plaques depicting names of those who have fallen who had attended various schools or colleges in UK. A beautiful array of 'kneelers' so lovingly made in honour.

If you go to Ypres visit this church. A wonderful memorial church. Many a fine man and woman is listed on the plaques therein. A must.

Winston Churchill proposed, after the First World War, to leave Ypres in its wrecked state, as a monument to what had happened. I do recognise that this might not have been a very convenient approach for the residents of Ypres, but I can also see its attractions, provided you are not from Ypres.

St. Georges Memorial Church is at the back of the Cloth Hall, it is a beautiful Church with stained glass window's that should not be missed. Contains kneelers on each seat of a regiment, lots of history inside. We were very lucky to hear a Welsh Choir sing in it. Well worth a visit.

A small but beautiful chapel just off the main square where the names schools and colleges are displayed with the lists of their pupils who gave their lives. A quiet place where one has a chance to reflect.

I suspect many miss this important building. Crammed full of memorials to many groups. The cushions on the pews can take time to work through but are most interesting. Just across the road from the cathedral so please make time to view.
