This memorial board hangs on  the wall of Copthorne Chapel and commemorates men from the Copthorne area who gave their lives in the Great War of 1914 - 1918.

A book was produced after the Remembrance Day service of Sunday 11th November 2007. When, having read the names on the memorial, we realised that we knew little of those named. Two of those listed were uncles of members today, namely E T Brackpool, the uncle of Mrs Win Rayfield and W Brooker, the uncle of Mrs Cath Brooker’s late husband, Richard (Dick).

As of October 2010, we now have some information on thirteen of those listed, their battalions, where they lived and are now buried or in some cases, where there is no burial site, the memorial abroad where they are remembered. In some cases there are photos of their gravestones or memorials in France and elsewhere.

Sadly, so far, there are just three we cannot trace, C Jerrard and J & W Mason. It is possible that the Masons are brothers or cousins or maybe not related at all. Along with C Jerrard, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) list shows that none have given their address as being near Copthorne Chapel, many in fact show no address of where they came from.
