This Roll of Honour records forty one names of the known war dead of the congregation. It was installed on the wall to the left (or north) side of the Church entrance in the first years of the 1920’s. Some of its original mountings can still be seen. Being of wood construction it eventually fell into disrepair. Older congregation members believe it was finally removed in the mid 1950’s.
The first public announcement regarding a memorial appeared in the Folkestone Herald of the 19th May 1917. It simply said “It has been decided to erect a War Shrine in St.Peter’s parish. Subscriptions will be thankfully received by the Vicar or by the Hon. Sec. and Treasurer, Mr T.C. Cullum, St. Peter’s Schools.”
December 1918 brought what the Folkestone Herald of the 28th called “The Victory Christmas!” At the Christmas morning service the Rev. C.J. Ridsdale read out the Roll of Honour, followed by the prayer “Eternal Rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. Amen.”
There is also a memorial, still extant, in the adjoining School of twenty-eight ex-pupils. Not all their names appear on the Church memorial. They are included here for completeness.
