Weybridge – St. James’s Church

Ten years ago or thereabouts I published four pictures of the Roll of Honour in St. James’s Church in Weybridge, Surrey.

And these are those very pictures,…

…the original post now deleted, by the way,…

…and, let’s be fair, they really weren’t much use to anyone.

I have since returned to try to do better.

And I did do a bit better, although the church is very dark, and the obstructions very annoying.

Still, the names are mostly visible this time,…

…four panels on one side,…

…and four more panels on the other side.

All goes well enough – this is the penultimate panel – until we reach the final one,…

…which just so happens to have a pew directly in front of it, making photographing it properly quite impossible.

Luckily, I found these nearby, although the names on these panels are not 100% the same as on the others.

    Very nice. Any idea why the discrepancy with the last panels?

      Thanks mate. No, I haven’t gone into the details, but sometimes there are very tenuous links between a soldier and the war memorial he appears on, as you know, I’m sure.

    Interesting seems to ve alot of names for community of about 7000 in 1911.
    Thank you

      That’s interesting. The area was a haven for NZ troops during the war, and there was a famous war hospital there too – may possibly have something to do with it.
