There but not there...
The seated silhouettes in the church and in the memorial garden of St James Church in Sewards End are a commemorative installation to the fallen of the First World War who were linked to Sewards End, as part of a project called “There But Not There”
The aims of the project are simple:
To Commemorate the Fallen; highlighting the sacrifices made by so many through silhouette installations around the country.
To Educate all generations, particularly today’s younger generation, to understand what led to the deaths of 888,246 people from Britain and The Commonwealth.
To help Heal those suffering from the hidden wounds of post-traumatic stress disorder and other lasting legacies of combat, by raising funds for the beneficiary charities.
