JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom re: War Memorials - South London Synagogue WW1 Memorial Gates? #unitedkingdom

My second cousin twice removed, Cecil Eprile, a noted architect
supposedly designed a set of gates for the ark of the South East
London synagogue. These were a memorial for those killed during the
first World War.

The synagogue is no more, having been destroyed in 1940. It was
rebuilt in 1956. I suppose the gates were destroyed as well.

The source for the original information apparently comes >from the
1930 Annual Jewish Year Book, but this needs checking.
