“Really nicely done!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is a lovely little church turned into a memorial for those who have fallen. Truly well done...all the way down to the numerous tapestry stitched cushions! It is free to enter, there are donation boxes. Just steps away from the Grote Markt.

“A place of quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

This quiet church is a great memorial to the British Army with many famous names on the plaques around the walls. Somehow I felt it was also a most fitting memorial to the ordinary humble Tommy. Let us learn from these selfless, ordinary people who have such a lesson to teach our present culture by even giving up their lives so that we might live in freedom

“Little gem.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A lovely little Chapel hidden away just around the corner from the Cathedral. It is filled with British Regiment banners, either in the form of flags or pew cushions. I think most of the Regiments have been represented, but it relies on donations. This shows the close relationship forged between the British and Belgian people through adversity. Worth a visit.

“So sad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Have some tissues with you when you go here, reading all the plaques to those lost in WW1 brought me to tears.
