Oxford War Memorials: St Paul's Church, Oxford (now in St Barnabas's Church)

St Paul's war memorial

St Barnabas's Church in Jericho has on its wall the First World War Memorials for two churches: its own, which is beside the War Memorial Chapel, and the one above, removed from St Paul's Church when it closed in 1969.

This memorial from St Paul's Church has at the top the inscription TANTUS LABOR NON SIT CASSUS (“May so great a labour not have been in vain”), above the figure of Christ on the Cross. Below are two white panels, with the heading FOR GOD, KING & COUNTRY 1914–1918 and the names of the 39 men killed, spread horizontally across those panels, followed by R.I.P.

The dates of the Second World War were later added to each side of the cross, with no names.
