BUXTED WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Andy Sturt 2010
additional information Martin Edwards

The memorial stands in the grounds of St Margaret the Queen Church, Buxted. It takes the form of a stone memorial with elaborate lantern cross with a square, tapering, shaft which rises from a square plinth resting on a two tier base with square blocks at each corner. The Lantern rests on the heads of two figures, each holding a shield against its chest. The two faces of the lantern depict, Christ with two children, and St. George slaying the Dragon; above both of these is a delicate decorative carving. At the top of the shaft is a small winged beast. Each side of plinth are the names of the fallen. The memorial lists names for St Margaret’s Parish, St Mary’s Parish and High Hurstwood. The steps below the plinth contain the names of those who gave their lives in World War 2 and a separate plaque list two civilians.
