Owner description: Tucked away almost and across the road from the Cathedral is this unique church built to honour the British and Commonwealth fallen of both world wars but principally the First World War. Built in 1927 it remains a superb place of remembrance and somewhere where families and individuals connected to 'the fallen' in Flanders Fields can find a moment of quiet, calm and reflection. There is a small resident congregation who live in Ypres and surrounding area of Belgium and Lille (Northern France). All are welcome to our regular Sunday services held in the Anglican tradition and you will be sure of a warm welcome.

A very simple church crammed with memorials to those young Britons who died in World War One . Seeing the memorials from schools who sent small groups who never returned was very poignant .Don't miss this little gem.

What a wonderful church. Take a moment to take it all in, remember the heroic, the brave, the less fortunate - it truly is a peaceful place.

This is a little out of the way church behind the massive Catholic cathedral but well worth it. Inside you will see brass plaques commemorating regiments and schools who lost men in WWI.

A friend of mine has a relative comemorated at this English church just a short walk from the square. I think he was called Llwellen-jones. He has a brass plaque on the wall at the back of the church which his men had made for him as a mark of respect after he was killed. Well worth a visit

This English Church contains plaques from thye different regiments as well as from schools and colleges who had pupils who lost their lives. It is a place for quiet contemplation.
