The 69 remembered

The tower of St John’s Church in Meads, Eastbourne, is the only remaining part of the original church which was bombed on 4th May 1942. The tower houses a small chapel and First World War memorial.

The memorial lists the names of 69 local men who died in the Great War. A Book of Remembrance is being made to record the histories of these men. The initial research is available to view in the Tower in a loose-leaf format so further research can be added. A Map of Meads in the Tower shows where the men lived – all in close proximity in the villages and surrounding area.
