St Luke’s World War One Memorial

Within St Paul’s there are two World War 1 memorials – one that was installed in St Paul’s in 1920, commemorating 93 residents of Finchley, some of whom were church members, and one that was originally installed in St Luke’s Finchley in Mountfield Road, commemorating 64 people, which was placed in St Paul’s in 1985 when St Luke’s closed. Interestingly, Edward Small and Donald Stevens are listed on both memorials.

The St Luke's Roll of Honour was dedicated by the Bishop of Willesden at a special service held in the Church on Saturday 23rd July 1921. Parishioners and church members donated £410 for the cost of this tablet and erecting a reredos in the church, containing the Ten Commandments, the Lord's Prayer and the Apostles' Creed, which was placed behind the communion table.
