All Saints Church
All Saints Remembers
11 November 2018
This year All Saints took the decision to mark the end of WW1 with a commemoration of all the men who died from Foots Cray. We were helped in this project by being successful with a grant from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund who gave us 8 silhouettes, on the basis that we would use them to Commemorate, Educate and Heal. Hence our exhibition which centred around the men and Foots Cray during 1914-1918.
Every man lost was researched and now has a folder with details about him and in many cases a photo. We were overwhelmed by people loaning us memorabilia for display, medals, certificates, bibles from the front and diaries. Also some articles from the French/Flanders ground.
