St. Paul's Tapestry Soldiers

Direct descendants of soldiers badly injured during the conflicts of WWI are being sought by St Paul’s, as the Cathedral prepares to display a unique piece of embroidery crafted by more than 100 recovering men.

Months of research by the Cathedral’s Collections Department has revealed 133 names of men from the UK, Canada, Australia and South Africa, who worked to create an elaborate altar frontal, used for many years after the War at the high altar.
