'On 11th November 2018 the United Kingdom remembers the hundredth anniversary of the Armistice marking the surrender of Germany on 11th November 1918 and the end of the Great War, a war we now call the First World War.
[And] although the community of Hadley Wood did serve, did suffer, and did lose sons, brothers, and husbands, there is no War Memorial in Hadley Wood, and no complete record of the local casualties from the First World War, Second World War, or later conflicts. A minority are remembered on the memorials at
Monken Hadley, Cockfosters and Potters Bar.'
(An extract from Hadley Wood War Memorial - In Memory of the Fallen by David Harbott)
So over the weekend of the 11th November St Paul's Hadley Wood commemorated the locals who gave their lives and service with a presentation by John Leatherdale and David Harbott including the Launch of the publication of 'Hadley Wood War memorial - In Memory of the Fallen' by David Harbott which can be found below. As well as a Roll of Honour revealed on Sunday 11th November during a special Remembrance Service at 10:30am.
