St Luke's WWI war memorial after works © St Luke's PCC 2016St Luke’s war memorial is located at St Luke’s Church, Oseney Crescent, Kentish Town, London. This large memorial board is divided into 5 panels, three of which are coated with off-white oil paint with names in dark brown gloss paint, it is within a timber frame with a cornice above, mounted on the wall inside the church. The memorial commemorates World War I with a gilded inscription on the front and names of those of the parish who died listed within the plaque. The church is a Grade II listed building and is located in the Bartholomew Estate Conservation Area.

In 2016 a grant of £2,540 was awarded through the War Memorials Trust Grants Scheme towards consolidation of paint, cleaning, repair and varnishing to improve legibility and prevent deterioration.St Luke's WWI war memorial before works © St Luke's PCC 2014

The board was installed after 1918 at the parish church of St Paul, Camden Square but was probably relocated to the present church when the parishes were amalgamated in 1956.
