The men from St Giles

St Giles’s church in Oxford is commemorating the 18 men from the parish who died in the first world war.  The church stands in the ‘V’ at the junction of the Banbury and Woodstock Roads but it was originally (1086) outside the built-up area of Oxford, in the parish of St Giles.
