St George's

Beautifully kept and a fitting memorial as well as a living place of worship. Here are so many memories of those who served, the great and the extraordinary.

An English church in the heart of Ypres, a few yards from the Cathedral. You enter to find yourself back home because of it's design and lay out. Well worth a visit along with the cathedral.

A very moving visit to this small memorial church to those British Soldiers who gave their lives in the 1st World War. The walls are covered with brass plaques remembering the fallen - some from individual regiments, others from the schools that the soldiers had been to. It reinforced the ultimate sacrifice that many people made in this conflict.

If you can speek of very good, because this is a place to remember the Great War. The interior of the church brings you back to the men and women who died for our freedom.

This church is a peaceful haven where one can collect ones thoughts [and seek out the kneeler made by a friend to commemorate his regiment's involvement in the conflict].

As the name of the church suggests, this is the place in Ypres where individuals and units, both great and small are commemorated. A living record of War in the Salient.

An active living church dedicated to the 500,000+ British and Commonwealth troops, who had died in the three battles fought for the Ypres Salient, during World War I. This church reflects what service by the troops in this area of Belgium did.

Nice little church to visit if you are in the area, but don't make a special trip if you are short of time as there are plenty of other better attractions/memorial to the war
