World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled & Copyright © Dai Bevan 2008

The Memorial stands outside the United Services Club in North Finchley in a fenced enclosure. The gates to the memorial bear the inscription ‘St. Kilda.’ It is in the form of a bronze sculpture on a cross carved into a granite block. The sculpture is also in the shape of a cross, with a soldier on the upright flanked by heads of a sailor and an airman on each arm. There is an inscription along the top of the armas, and another at the foot of the upright. The main inscription is on the stone, below the sculpture. There are no individual names. Alongside the Memorial are others from the Finchley Depot of the Metropolitan Electric Tramways Company and the Hendon Bus Garage
