Primrose Hill schoolchildren are desperate for help uncovering the secrets of their local war memorial.
Pupils at St Paul’s Primary School are working on a project to find out more about the names on the memorial at neighbouring St Mary’s Church.
The memorial has been damaged by the elements so as to make the names almost imperceptible, but the church are currently fundraising to install a replacement on Remembrance Day.
Meanwhile, the schoolchildren are to work with a local historian to find out more about the 38 names on the memorial.
The majority – 35 – relate to the First World War – but two are from the Second World War and one from the Falklands War.
