A plaque commemorating 18 of the men ‘connected with the congregation’ of Ilford Presbyterian Church on Oakfield Road who were killed in the war, is now part of the collections of Redbridge Museum.

Ilford Presbyterian Church entered into a union with The Vine Congregational Church (now known as Vine United Reformed Church) in 1966. As church numbers declined, it finally merged with The Vine Congregational Church in 1972.

The brass plaque, inscribed with an epitaph and the names of members of the church killed in the war is set on a wooden mount. Above the inscription is featured the design of a bird surmounting two roundels. One roundel features an image of an open book with the text: 'THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURETH FOR EVER' and the other roundel features an image of a burning bush surrounded by the motto 'NEC TAMEN CONSUMEBATUR' (Latin for ‘Yet it was not consumed’). The plaque is framed with a decorative oak leaf border design.
