Lost war memorial to Cricklewood soldiers unveiled in Remembrance service
Plaque was discovered during church spring clean
A ‘lost’ war memorial which was found during a spring clean has been unveiled during a Remembrance service yesterday.
The plaque which commemorates two 20-year-old men from Cricklewood who died during World War One was originally in the old site of Cricklewood Baptist Church.
However, after the was building was sold to property developers in 1990s the plaque was removed and stored in the church’s new site on Snyed Road - where it was forgotten.
It was uncovered during a spring clean in the summer and 95-year-old Joan Evans, who lost her own father in the First World War, unveiled it during the church service.
