Site of Christ Church, Jamaica Road, Rotherhithe, London, SE16
The church stood at this site, junction with Cathay Street, having been built in 1839 and demolished in 1979. Outside the church and only a yard from the footpath in Jamaica Road, was the sarcophagus of Field Marshal Sir William Maynard Gomm GCB (1784-1875). He held a continuous commission in the army for 81 years and his awards were buried with him. On 05-03-1980 his awards, that included his Waterloo medal and Field Marshall's baton (inscribed by Queen Victoria) were sold at Sothebys for 26,000-00 and shipped to the USA. His second wife, Elizabeth, who died 30-11-1877 was buried with him. [also see Jura House].
