The newly restored memorial

Titchfield residents who died as a result of the war and whose stories have since been brought to light.

Two dead pennies, given to the family of father and son Carnarvon Lewis Whittaker and Arthur Carnarvon Whittaker and left in the care of St. Peter’s Church when the family moved away, will be on display.

Five silhouettes, reminding us of those who are “There but not there,” will be seated around the church.

You may wish to light a candle, say a prayer or write down your thoughts in a book which will be placed in church for this purpose.

Tea and coffee will be available in the chapter room.

Our annual Service of Remembrance will begin in church at the usual time of 10am on Sunday 11 th November, Armistice Day, after which we shall process to the war memorial for the Act of Remembrance.
