Centenary of the end of The Great War Exhibition in Church

Remembrance Sunday 2018 falls on the exact day that one hundred years ago World War One ended. Communities across this Country and the Commonwealth had seen their men go off to war over that four year period, far too many of whom were never to return. Hernhill was no different. Of the men from this Parish who went off to fight thirty never came back. This number included six pairs of brothers. Their names are all recorded on our war memorial and, thanks to extensive research by Sue Owen, the stories behind these names are known. An exhibition based on Sue’s research will be in church from Monday 5th to Sunday 18th November, between 10am and 4pm each day. The family names, addresses and places of work of these men will be familiar to many and are a very poignant and sobering reminder of how much we owe to them for their bravery and sacrifice. Please do come and look and remember.
