Remembering Thirty-Three Chiswick Men Who Died In WW1
The 'Heroes of Chiswick' exhibition is open to all until August
The Exhibition was launched at the St Michael's Elmwood Road street party on June 14th and is open from 9.30- 5.00 every day, based in the church. Admission is free.
The exhibition remembers thirty-three men of Chiswick who gave their lives in the Great War. Their names have been commemorated in the church on this pillar in the church and on the stained glass windows, but very few people knew the real-life stories behind the names.

Heroes of Chiswick is a record researched by the team at Heroes of Chiswick over many months and members of the community including schoolchildren, also became involved researching in archives and historical databases.
