Holy Trinity Church of England Kensington

Honour Rolls

 

The former Holy Trinity Church, Epsom Rd, Kensington.  The church was sold in the early 1970s, and it is thought that the Honour Board disappeared at that time.  Anglican Churches typically had quite large honour boards, in the sense of numbers of names.  In the absence of the board, this page will contain links to the volunteers known to have had associations with Holy Trinity Church.  (Photo:  Lenore Frost 2011)

 

HOLY TRINITY, KENSINGTON.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARGUS.
Sir,--Kindly allow me to make known a  
movement at Holy Trinity, Kensington.
We are building a new church, and have estab-
lished a twenty thousand shilling fund. There
 are many ex parishioners who would, I am
sure, like to help, and the only way of letting
them know is through your paper.   I shall be
glad to receive any donations, however small,
towards this object. Our present buildings are
insufficient to carry on our work. Our chief
assets, and very valuable ones, are children.
Yours, &c , 
HY. H. J. NORWOOD.
The Vicarage, 22 Mccracken street, Kensington,
