Are you related to a First World War local hero?

91 men are commemorated on a memorial to the fallen of the First World War in St Stephen’s Church in Uxbridge Road.

The memorial, now re-hung in the church, will be re-dedicated on Remembrance Sunday to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the War, and the church is now keen to find relatives of the men.

They say that if your family is represented on the Memorial, please contact them. You are warmly invited to join the service on November 9 at 10am.

The church will also be open on Friday and Saturday November 7 and 8 from 10am – 4pm for visitors who wish to see the church’s memorial, newly cleaned and re-hung. There will also be a small exhibition, with histories of the men, maps to show where they lived in Shepherd's Bush and where they are buried in France, plus photographs, books, posters and other items associated with the First World War.
