Church makes appeal ahead of rededication service
A CHURCH has made a fresh appeal for information on fallen war heroes ahead of the rededication of its restored memorial.
The monument at St Barnabas Church, Snakes Lane East, Woodford Green, had fallen into disrepair but was saved by an �8,000 renovation project last year.
It lists the names of World War One soldiers and the church has urged residents to get in contact if they know of any others who have died in battle since.
Church warden Alan Clark said: “We want to bring the memorial to life before the service.
“We are trying to find a suitable member of the clergy to conduct it for us and we are hoping to sort something out in May or June.

“This year also marks our centenary so we will be looking to put the two things together.”
Work on the plinth was completed in May and saw a rotten section of the timber cross replaced and the figure of Christ and surrounding brickwork restored.
