The First World War in Herne Hill
Remembering Herne Hill 1914-18
A specially commissioned war memorial, carved on Welsh slate by Mark Brooks, was unveiled by Helen Hayes MP at Herne Hill Station on Sun 10 November 2019. This was the culmination of two years’ intensive research into Herne Hill’s casualties. The memorial stone was financed by Southeastern Railway.
Our memorial website now contains over 550 full records of men (and two women) from Herne Hill who served and died in the First World War.
