The interior of St George's Church is wonderful, all the kneelers have been carefully and thoughtfully handcrafted with the insignia of British forces regiments and it is obvious that the patrons are determined that those who gave their lives for freedom will not be forgotten.

Wow, I was amazed at the church, so many plaques I learnt that Winston Churchill was in the trenches in WW1, I didn't no that before, So many Schools/Villages/businesses that had ALL there young men go to Fight together and never come home. So much history we really need to learn about.

This is worth the walk around the Cloth Hall full of mementos from the 1st World War. They do have services on a Sunday Morning and evensong on Sunday Night

A church doesn't have to be an outstanding piece of architecture to give comfort to those who use it. It was so interesting to read all the plaques around the walls and to see all the beautifully created cushions. A little piece of the U.K. within beautiful Belgium. A fitting tribute.

St George's Memorial Church is a most homely and in a way simple building which is heavily laden with the memorialisation of those from Great Britain who served and fell in the Great War. I always find it to be a most moving place to visit.

During free time on my Flanders Field tour, chanced upon the church. Built when Ypres was rebuilt. Very poignant individual brass plaques to dead soldiers. Bigger plaques to regiments fallen and fallen from schools etc. This had a vivid impact on me; however this was before l visited Tyne Cott, Menin Gate etc.

This well looked after church looks like an English country church, and has many plaques placed by schools and colleges in honour of former pupils. Many people were in visiting.

Lot's of Regimental commemoration plaques and stained glass windows of the famous British (Reginald) Bell stained glass company
