Epsom College Panelling

Gold leaf panels honour the fallen

During half term, sign writer Simon Thrower crafted in striking gold leaf the names of the OEs who died in the early wars and the First World War onto the wooden panels in St Luke’s Chapel. It has taken many years of archival research to bring together a definitive list of those that died. As late as 2017 a name was added to the list.

We were fortunate to engage Simon Thrower to perform this task. A second-generation craftsman he and his father’s work features on many prestigious honours boards across Surrey. Simon has continued in his father’s footsteps and still uses the traditional style of free-hand signwriting.
