Brief description of site

The chapel and its setting is a unique memorial to all those 'forgotten dead' whose names were not recorded on official war memorials. It is the only site in the UK which marks the Macedonian campaign.

Brief history of site

In 1924 Mr and Mrs J L Behrend decided to build a chapel on land in Burghclere which they had purchased in 1923 from Carnarvon estate. Their intention was to facilitate a space for their friend Stanley Spencer in which to display a series of huge canvases depicting aspects of the Macedonian campaign. In 2014 a new 'memorial garden' designed by Daniel Lobb was opened behind the chapel.
