Description

The Crusaders' Union organisation premises, at Westbrook House in Seaview, were acquired in 1947, thanks to the generosity of Mr John Laing (of the building firm). The property is dedicated to the memory of those members of the organisation who died during the Second World War.

There is a Memorial Plaque in the entrance hall of the house, and a Book of Remembrance in the staircase lobby. This records the names of 647 men from all over the United Kingdom who lost their lives in the service of their country.

The Crusaders' Union now use the operating name Urban Saints. For more details see their website http://www.urbansaints.org/

Many thanks to Tony Roberts of the Urban Saints for permission to photograph and record the Memorial and Book of Remembrance, and to Jo Slater (Urban Saints, Supporters Co-Ordinator) for additional assistance on the history of the Crusaders' Union.

Further Information
Names recorded in the Book of Remembrance

The names are generally in alphabetical order by surname, but this is not strictly adhered to, since some additional surnames appear after the main lists within the initial letter.
Where there is no CWGC reference, then this is because there may be more than CWGC entry for that particular name.
