Remembrance Day 2019

Many people know of the War memorial in the High Street, but not so many people know of the other War Memorial in the grounds of East Court. This smaller one is dedicated to both the armed forces and civilian casualties of the 1939-1945 War.

Each year at 11am on Remembrance Day there is a large ceremony in the High Street, but there is also a smaller ceremony preceding it at 10am in East Court. On November 10th this year, as every November, East Grinstead Memorial Estate lays a wreath in both ceremonies to remember local people from East Grisntead who gave up their lives for us.

You can learn more about the East Court memorial on our Roll of Honour page.
