About the memorial: The Garden of Remembrance, Burgess Hill, Sussex. The cenotaph stands on a raised platform and from the octagonal base rises a stone pillar, which is surmounted by a bronze figure of St. George by Mr Gough of London. Mr Walter Tower, of Lindfield, Sussex designed the original Garden of Remembrance and it was illuminated at night, free of charge, by the then Electric Supply Company. On the panels of the base are recorded 145 names of those who died in the service of their country in the Great War 1914 - 1919. The Memorial was unveiled and dedicated on Armistice Day, 11th Nov. 1923. The name of the foundry is cast into the base of the statue. After the second world war, two black granite memorial stones were erected in the Garden to record the names of those local men and women who had lost their lives between 1939 and 1945. In addition there is the name of a soldier lost during the Falklands Conflict in 1982. The war memorial was re-dedicated during a ceremony in 1972 and a new plaque added to the main stone base. The Burgess Hill Garden of Remembrance is located to the South East of Civic Way, on the corner of Crescent Way. Access is via Church Walk, a pedestrian walk through the main shopping precinct. The Memorial is located towards the back of the garden and is approached from a widely paved footpath.
