While doing my dissertation research, I had to go to London a couple times. In between interviews and presentations, I visited several churches. And I loved every minute!
|Coptic Church in Kensington|
|St. Sarkis Armenian Apostolic Church, Kensington|
|Genocide Memorial at St. Sarkis|
|Guild Church of St. Mary Aldermary|
The original was destroyed in the Great Fire, but it was rebuilt in 1679-82.
I had some ancestors who attended this church, so I was sad to see it had been turned into a cafe.
But at least the building still exists!
The term 'Cockney' referred to anyone who grew up within the sound of its bells.
It is just across from St. Mary Aldermary, but most of my ancestors in London attended here.
