World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Chris Comber 2009

The main WAR memorial is to be found in the Town Hall and takes the form of a list of names and initials only, carved on wooden panels at the top of the main staircase above the entrance hall. The Eastbourne Borough Memorial Book kept in the library records most of these names with some details and additions. Later entries are rather basic with Surname and initials only. There are many church memorials and organisations and these are included where possible as follows.

Numbers vary as usual but 1258 seems to be roughly the total recorded so far. More will doubtless be added.
