The Burwash Crosses

The Burwash Crosses

Inside the porch of St Bartholomew’s Church, Burwash, East Sussex are thirteen wooden battlefield cross grave markers recovered from France and Flanders under the auspices of the Church Army. (Two men have two crosses each.) They were originally unveiled on 22nd June 1924, and subsequently restored and rededicated on 10th May 2015. There is also a white cross displayed among the others. This white cross is not a Battlefield cross, but is nevertheless included in this community. Further information about these crosses can be found at http://thereturned.co.uk/crosses/burwash/
