Redbridge and the First World War

Redbridge Museum's current exhibition is on Redbridge and the First World War. It runs until 30 May 2015.

This major exhibition by Redbridge Museum uncovers some of the local impacts of the First World War. Based on new research, the exhibition explores how the war affected local life, the international nature of the conflict and the family histories of today's Redbridge residents.

The display features a wealth of historic objects, photographs and personal items, many on display for the first time. The exhibition also includes films made by Wanstead High School students and artist Victoria Lucas, working with the Museum and the National Portrait Gallery (

A brand new website about Redbridge and the First World War will also be launched shortly, alongside a new book about the subject. These will include photographs of the First World War memorial at St John's Seven Kings

More information about the memorials at St John's can be found at:;; and These include research into those named on our First World War memorial.

See for photographs and the book once the site is fully functional and has been launched.
