South Chingford Book of Remembrance

A Book of Remembrance recording the names of those who lived or worked in South Chingford is displayed in church. The book contains a separate page for each day of the year, and people are named on the anniversary of their death.

There are already nearly 2,500 names included, however we invite you to submit the names of any people from South Chingford who were significant to you. These may be church members, members of your own family or friends, acquaintances or neighbours, or other people from within the community (doctors, nurses, midwives, teachers, councillors, shopkeepers etc).

The book is a celebration of the whole community of South Chingford and therefore we accept names of people irrespective of faith, background, or lifestyle choice.

If there are any people you would like to see remembered this way, please provide us with their full name (forenames and surname), date of death, and where in South Chingford the person lived, worked or worshipped.

If you do not have the full information, give as many of the details as you can, and we will try to research any missing elements.

Email names and details to the church's email [email protected].

There is no charge for this service. If you wish to make a donation, we will use that to help build up the book by researching details of people whose dates of death are not currently known.
