Dosnt seem to visited as much as some locations in the area but this little gem is a short walk from the cloth hall and is well worth a visit.

This church was built specifically to provide a place for the families of Commonwealth fallen to come and remember their lost sons and fathers. Inside is full of wall plaques, pew covers etc that commemorate the various regiments. Don't miss it.

Just a short stroll from the main square in Ypres is this quiet church steeped in history. Seeing the different plaques, pew cushions and other memorials is pretty poignant but slightly different from some of the museums, cemeteries. Worth a visit when in Ypres.

A great place to visit. Always special and moving. Recommended. My school, Queen Mary's Grammar School, Walsall, has a memorial plaque in the church which I always make a point of visiting every time I am in the town. Always worth a visit for anyone in the town.

This is a lovely and very moving small church in the suburbs of Ypres, but to anyone who is ex Military or interested in the War you must visit. Every Regiment who served in the War are represented somewhere in the Church, many of the Regiments no longer exist or have been swallowed up into larger Regiments over the years.... More

This is really breathtaking. Although Ieper (Ypres) is already full of memorials, entering this church will ad an extra experience. A church fulley dedicated to all the men who gave their lives and regiments who fought on Iepers battlefields.

A charming little church and a must see for any commonwealth visitor, there is so much work and dedication gone into the building of this church after the war.

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.
