About
Tucked away almost and across the road from the Cathedral is this unique church built to honour the British and Commonwealth fallen of both world wars but principally the First World War. Built in 1927 it remains a superb place of remembrance and somewhere where families and individuals connected to 'the fallen' in Flanders Fields can find a moment of quiet, calm and reflection. There is a small resident congregation who live in Ypres and surrounding area of Belgium and Lille (Northern France). All are welcome to our regular Sunday services held in the Anglican tradition and you will be sure of a warm welcome.

This church was a happy discovery as I walked about Ieper during a day trip to visit the WWI sites in the town and surrounding area. The site is an impressive memorial to the hundreds of thousands of lost British soldiers in the Ypres Salient, and is lovingly decorated and maintained by those who keep the memories of their lost relatives and countrymen alive. Just off the main square area, it isn't a major detour from the museum and cathedral and worth a short visit.

Saint George's Memorial Church is situated very near to St. Martin's Cathedral and is, as the name suggests, a Memorial Church. It looks very British and is full of memorials and banners apertaining to WW1

We visited the church to see the interior and read the various memorial tablets. We later returned to take part in Sunday evening Evensong, although I do not regularly worship in an Anglican church I was still made extremely welcome. The lovely Lay Reader, when discovering we visited Ieper regularly to visit a family grave, included my two Great Uncles killed in The Great War in the prayers which meant a lot.

Tucked away and easy to miss but don’t ! An English church built around 1927 to honour the fallen. Interesting inside and well worth a visit. Seems odd an English church in Ypres. Tell you how it came about inside

Its easy to walk past this church and not enter. It looked closed but we tried the door and went in. It is full of memorials to ordinary British servicemen who gave their lives in World War 1. We found some from towns and schools that we knew well. It was very moving.

St. George’s is an oddity, an English country church in Ypres, full of memorial. I don’t know of anywhere else where you might find a memorial to a Field Marshall and a Private soldier in the same place.

The church just off the main square is a must visit when in Ieper. Built as a memorial to British troops after WW1 it contains many plaques to regiments, individuals and schools who served and died in the battles. It is beautifully kept.
