“Remembering soldiers right up to present”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This is a quaint little church opposite the cathedral. It commemorates soldiers right up to the present day including Lee Rigby. It is incredibly moving..

“Iepre site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

A very quirky place with lots of memorials. It was open weekend when we visited so we could see the school room as well.

“The "British Church"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Open daily till about 7pm (in June anyway, when we were there) worth seeing to appreciate all the donated memorials, plaques, etc dedicated to the fallen of the First World War

“Vital in understanding the conflict”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The silence, the sense of respect and the every growing number of memorials, especially from schools - lest we forget.
