The Men of Raynes Park 1914-18

As part of the First World War centenary, St. Saviour's Church in Raynes Park is hoping to raise funds to refurbish its war memorial. This was designed by Thomas Mewburn Crook and unveiled in 1921.

The memorial bears the names of 97 men from the parish who gave their life for King and country. Visitors to the church can now view an exhibition which gives details of the life stories of these men, in addition to an overview of the parish during the war years and details of the memorial and its construction.

The exhibition will be on show until 11 November. Opening hours will be as follows:

Monday - Thursday : 4.30 - 8.30pm  

Friday: 4.30 - 7.00pm

Saturday: 10am - 12 noon and 2 - 4pm

Sunday: ( 4 Nov ) 2 - 4pm; ( 11 Nov ) 11.15 - 4pm

Admission to the exhibition is free but visitors are encouraged to make a donation or pledge to support the refurbishment of the war memorial.
