Reader offer: Guided tour of Croydon Minster’s memorials

Inside Croydon is delighted to announce that Croydon Minster’s historian and tour guide, David Morgan, will be conducting a special guided tour in Remembrance Week exclusively for our readers, looking at the memorials in the church to those who gave their lives in conflicts during the 20th Century.

This “War and Peace” Tour will be held on the evening of Thursday, November 14.

Places on the tour are strictly limited, and are expected to be taken up very quickly, so you are advised to book straight away. Priority will be given to Inside Croydon subscribers.

The tour is non-religious and open to people of all faiths, and of none.

It will also provide the opportunity to enjoy the musical excellence of the Croydon Minster choir at Evensong, immediately before the tour begins.

Minster historian David Morgan: taking our tour on Nov 14

Children over the age of eight are welcome, but only if accompanied by an adult.

The tour is free of charge, but we ask that all those attending should make a voluntary donation to the Minster, for its upkeep and restoration work, or towards its organ fund.

As Morgan highlighted in two articles published yesterday, what was previously known as Croydon Parish Church has numerous memorials to those who died in the two world wars.

His guided tour on November 14 will highlight the plaques, statues and tombs of some of those mentioned in the articles, and others.
