Synopsis: The names of eighty one men from Cuckfield who gave their lives in World War 1 are inscribed around the base of 'The Cross of Sacrifice' War Memorial in the churchyard of Holy Trinity Church, Cuckfield, Sussex. Using her knowledge of researching family history the author has discovered this information and to it has added the Regiment each man joined, letters they sent home describing the conditions they had to endure, and the injuries they suffered. There were times of great pride when men were promoted. Letters sent by the Chaplains to loved ones at home upon the death of their son describe the bravery shown, and the reference position of each foreign gave or memorial will help those who may wish to visit the site. This book is not just about the men who died, although their histories from the central part of it. It describes life in Cuckfield during the war, the valuable part the women played in the war effort, the hospital set up in the Queen's Hall, and the many Memorial Services held in the churches. Those who returned home after Peace was declared enjoyed great celebrations, and details of the welcome home dinners list all those who took part in the war.It is hoped that many people will be able to connect with the numerous names and places mentioned, and that the book will go some way towards ensuring that the men who gave their lives will never be forgotten.
