Within the parish we have three principal war memorials, together with a number of plaques related to individuals from St. Michael’s congregation. You can read all about them on our War Memorials page.
The public naming and commemoration of War Dead, particularly combatants, has an interesting history of development, which you can also read on the War Memorials page.
The Parish Fallen
From the 128 names inscribed on the war memorials at St Michael and All Angel’s church, Bedford Park, David Beresford, a member of the congregation, has researched as many individuals as he can identify.
They are listed on our Parish Fallen page, where you read the stories behind their names, learn how their war was fought and how their families and the community were affected.
