Plaque Policy

 

Policy for the placing of plaques in the church

 

  • St Giles’ is a historic Grade 1 listed building
  • The church was bombed during WW2. A few of the memorials survived including those of John Milton, John Speed and former Lord Mayor William Staines
  • The most recent memorial in the church dates from 1907

 

In order to respect the integrity of the mediaeval church, and because so many luminaries have been associated with the parish over the centuries, it is not our policy in general to install individual plaques or memorials.

 

Recent history

 

1. The PCC was approached by the Cromwell Society wanting to put up a plaque commemorating the marriage of Oliver Cromwell and Elizabeth Bourchier in 1624. The PCC supported this application and it received a DAC certificate. The Chancellor did not grant a Faculty; a plaque was not erected.

2. The PCC has had enquiries from interest groups about placing plaques to:

 

Richard Smyth (1590 – 1675) bibliophile and author of “The obituary of Richard Smyth, secondary of the Poultry Compter, London: being a catalogue of all such persons as he knew in their life; extending from A.D. 1627 to A.D.1674” and

 

Mark Catesby (1683-1749) Fellow of the Royal Society author and illustrator of “The natural history of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama islands”.            

 

Neither enquiry gained the support of the PCC.

 

Procedure

  • The PCC considers all enquiries in consultation with the Quinquennial Architect and DAC advisors
  • Donations are regularly made to the fabric and furniture of the church; if such are in memory of a loved one, a small memorial plate can be discreetly sited.
