1. My brother and I were christened in the Crypt of St Stephens . The only piece left of the beautiful building after WW2 plus the parsonage? This was 70 odd yrs ago. Both our grandparents lived in Bow and this was their church. I remember, just, going to services in the crypt with my mother and nan.

    • When we were children my sister and I used to go to church there in the crypt . We used to go with our parents , Marjorie ( nee Knowles ) and Douglas Burbidge. My parents were married in Bow church and my grandfather owned Sheridan Knowles , picture framers and cabinet makers right opposite Bow church .
      I don’t know how we came to go to St. Stephens to church , in our camel coats and green velour hats !
