A memorial in St Paul's Church commemorates 52 members of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry who died on active service in World War II, carrying out secret intelligence work for the Special Operations Executive in occupied countries as well as providing transport drivers for the ATS. It includes three holders of the George Cross.
St Paul's sister-parish is the Church of St. Paul's, K street, in Washington DC in the United States.
The elaborate and highly decorated building was the first church in London to manifest the principles and ideals of the Oxford Movement. The building was consecrated in 1843 and the chancel with its rood screen and striking reredos was added in 1892 by the noted church architect George Frederick Bodley who also decorated St Luke's Chapel.[where?]
