World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Lee Cooke 2008

The memorial is located in the rear wall of the beer garden of the Steam Packet Public House (closed and reopened), 54 River Road, Littlehampton. It is visible from the road but faces the front garden of a private residence and is at risk of becoming obscured by plant growth. It was previously at Duke and Ockenden Ltd., Terminus Road, Littlehampton. It takes the form of an upright, rectangular tablet with splayed edges which is set within a brick framed niche in a garden wall. There are five names listed. In 2008 The Steam Packet Public House closed and the freehold was up for sale. In 2010, apparently during building work, the rear wall was knocked and the memorial came partly away from the wall, and one of the bricks became dislodged. Then in July, 2013, the brickwork was repaired and the memorial was fixed to the wall, following the reopening of the pub.
