Every year for Remembrance Day Copythorne Parish History Society create an avenue of Remembrance at St Mary’s Church Copythorne. The avenue runs from the war memorial besides the road up the gravel track to the church and culminates in two large banners either side of the church door that are a roll of honour for the men of Copythorne who lost their lives in the Great War. All the names and pictures were researched by the Copythorne Parish History Society and funding from the National Lottery Heritage fund was made available through the Our Past, Our Future Landscape Partnership Scheme was provided to desgin and create the banners for the society.

The roll of honour contains 310 names. 126 have photos linked to them and 196 don’t. Can you help add more images to the names?

The men come from Bartley, Copythorne, Cadnam, Newbridge, Ower & Winsor
