Sussex People

Welcome to the Sussex People website, where you will find biographical articles about men and women from Sussex, and neighbouring counties.

The topics covered include:

  1. Biographies of members of Sussex Masonic lodges who lost their lives as a result of the First World War.
  2. Biographies of parish priests from Cocking, near Midhurst in West Sussex and their curates.
  3. Southampton Masonic Roll of Honour
  4. New Forest Masonic Roll of Honour
  5. Crime and punishment in Cocking in the Nineteenth Century

I have also used this site to host my father’s war memoirs and the contents of the former Midhurst U3A Rother Valley War Memorials website.

For an alphabetical list of all articles see the index.
