  YOU ARE IN: GRAVES

Having such a long history there are many interesting graves around the church. Some are shown here. To help read the inscription click the picture for a larger (and longer) more detailed download.


The small headstone to the right of this group marks the grave of Sir Harold Macmillan. Long time British Prime Minister and his Wife Lady Dorothy. They both lived at nearby Birch Grove House and worshipped at St. Giles often. President Kennedy stayed there just 1 month before he died. Along with most of the local residents I saw him there as he travelled in a long convoy to the nearest (then) Catholic church in Forest Row. So Kennedy slept if not in our village then certainly in our Parish!
This grave is interesting as it records the details of a motor accident which led to both the Taylors' demise. Click the picture for a larger readable version.
The Leighton family were also regular worshippers here. This grave is dated 9 January 1684. Robert was a member of the Episcopal Church of Scotland and was at one time Bishop of Dunblane and later Archbishop of Glasgow. Read the complete history of the church here.

 

This is the grave of Louis Martindale
a name only known in the village.
It belongs to the lady who built a village hall
come church called "The Martindale Centre".
It is still used to this day.
Take a look here.
