The Great War Project
Our Streets in the First World War
The First World War took place between 1914 – 1918 and during this time of the centenary we have been looking at the impact of the war in this area of north London. A parish church contains many historical records and monuments that give us a glimpse of the past. St Bartholomew’s church has a large number of items associated with the war that tell the story of what was happening on the Home Front in this area. We have looked at the baptism and marriage registers, the service registers, the memorial windows, monuments and plaques, we have discovered that objects and arts works were put into the church, even the organ was installed after the war as the community memorial. We have researched the names on the war memorials – all men who lived and worked in the local area – perhaps in your street, or home or who went to your school.
Please have a look at our introductory films and if you would like to see these historic items for yourself, you are very welcome.
