Storrington’s Surrounding Villages

As part of the 2014 project, additional research was carried out on the war memorials of the villages that surround Storrington: Amberley, Ashington, Bury, Greatham, Parham, Sullington, Thakeham, Washington and West Chiltington.

Books are on display at Storrington Library.

Remembrance Books were created from the research and presented to the local parishes. Here are some of the presentations:

The book of Remembrance was presented at Amberley to Michael 
Davey, Churchwarden after the morning service.  Several parishioners were 
still around after the service and listened with interest to the 
explanation of what we have been doing and why.
On Friday 13th July 2018 the Book of Remembrance of the Casualties from 
Bury was presented to Father Peter Mallinson, Vicar of St John the 
Evangelist, Bury.  Some of the pupils at Bury Church of England Primary 
School will be studying the centenary of the end of the conflict next 
term and Thomas Moore, Head of Bury School,  brought two pupils along to 
the presentation.
We are please to have received from Buzzard Class, Bury CE Primary school, a copy of a book for the men who fell in WW2 from Bury.
