St Pancras

The war memorial for St Pancras is situated in the St Pancras & Islington Cemetery, East Finchley, London. From the Commonwealth War Graves Commission: “In St Pancras Cemetery, over 100 graves from both wars form a war graves plot. The plot also contains a number of headstones removed from graves scattered elsewhere in the cemetery that could not be maintained. A further memorial bears the names of 27 casualties whose graves could not be marked individually, and six First World War casualties buried in adjacent Islington Cemetery who could not be commemorated there. There are now 299 First World War commemorations in St Pancras Cemetery, including 1 unidentified sailor of the Royal Navy, and 207 from the Second World War. There are 5 foreign national burials and 1 non-war service burial here.

On 28 November 2012, the CWGC announced that this cemetery will see a large refurbishment over the coming weeks.

“The plot at St. Pancras Cemetery in north London is getting a full facelift, following a visit from a CWGC maintenance team. The plot had already been given a thorough cleaning before the Olympic Games this Summer.

The latest work involves the cleaning of all the paving, the Cross of Sacrifice and the memorials in the plot. The paving is going to be raised, to allow for the laying of a new base. The existing sandstone paving will be re-laid, and the existing clay paving will be replaced.

Some of the clay paving has become fused and cracked over the years. The new clay paving will match the existing as closely as possible.

There is some copper staining on the shaft of the Cross of Sacrifice; this is to be removed using an innovative treatment. It is hoped that all the work at St Pancras will be completed before Christmas.”
