STONE CROSS WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Transcribed Janet Graves 2004

Stone Cross is a small village between Eastbourne and Bexhill, approximately 7 miles from each town. St. Luke's Church was built as a memorial to Charles William Owen who died in 1922 (please see memorial plaque) and was completed in 1929. Due to lack of support the Church was eventually closed in 1976. The Stone Cross Roll of Honour, along with other items was given for safe keeping, to St Mary the Virgin's Parish Church at Westham, some 3 miles away. In 1989, with considerable new housing having been built in the area, the Church was restored and reopened. However, the Roll of Honour was not returned to St Luke's until March of 2004. The 1914 - 1918 memorial within the Church was once part of an altar. During the various changes that have taken place the alter was moved from the main part of the Church to a side room. Access to the memorial was limited. In 2006 the alatar was moved from the sacristy of St Luke's Church (which was kept locked) into the main body of the church, immediately below the roll of honour. This has effectively turned an area - that was little more than a corridor into the new Parish Centre building - into a memorial chapel. This means both the framed roll of honour and the roll on the front of the altar are now readily available for viewing by members of the public (the church is normally open during daylight hours). The names appearing on both the memorial stone cross and the altar are marked †. As a footnote to the memorial there are two young girls, civilians, who also died. This article by Rod Barker:

The Girls on the War Memorial

We all pass the stone war memorial by the church many times every week. Next time you are passing, stop and read the names and remember those who had lived nearby and died in the horrors of the two world wars. It is a chilling thought.

Among the list of those who died in the Second World War, there are the names of two girls; Myrtle Wilkinson and Peggy Harland. Theirs is a very sad story.

On the 26th September 1940 Myrtle and her sister Phyllis had arranged to meet their friend Peggy in town. What they had not expected was a German air raid during their trip into Eastbourne. When the bombs fell Myrtle died instantly, but Peggy was trapped, had to have her legs amputated and died a few days later. Phyllis was nursed at the local hospital and survived.

It is a sad reflection that they are not better remembered. Peggy was a member of the 1st Stone Cross Company of the Girl Guides and was posthumously awarded their “Gilt Cross” for gallantry. Perhaps the Guides will attend the next Remembrance Day Service to honour their lost sister, one of only a few honoured in this way on a war memorial anywhere in England.

There is a window memorial to Alexander Campbell (WW1) and also to Charles Owen at St Mary the Virgin Church at Westham (presumably because St Luke's Church was not completed until 1929).

Within the church is to be found a Roll of Honour listing all those who served. Those who died are marked on the Roll of Honour with a red cross and R.I.P. Some names are marked with one, two or three lines (these have been marked with the appropriate number of asterisks *). The Churchwarden thought they might represent ranks - lance corporal, corporal and sergeant but we are not really sure. Not all the names appearing on the war memorials appear on the roll of honour, those omitted are marked '-'.

THIS CHURCH WAS BUILT
TO THE GLORY OF GOD
AND IN EVERY LOVING MEMORY OF
CHARLES WILLIAM OWEN
LIEUTENANT-COLONEL, I.M.S., C.M.G., C.I.E., J.P.
OF THE HORNS, HANKHAM.
WHO DIED 23RD MAY, 1922, AGED 69.
ALSO OF MARY ELIZABETH, HIS WIFE
WHO DIED 11TH APRIL, 1920, AGED 63.
