About the memorial: Memorial stone to local landowner and MP William Lucas-Shadwell who died in 1915 at the age of 63 (so presumably not war-related) along with those who had died for their country (presumably in the First World War, although not specified). (c Ian Capper geograph)A crucifix satnds above the stone. Next door to St Andrew's graveyard is a small area donated for Catholic burials. This memorial is not associated with St Andrew's Church. WMT have been informed that the stone and cross were brought to the Catholic site from the grounds of a nearby private Catholic chapel, in Chick Hill, Pett when the land was deconsecrated. There is no external memorial at St Andrew's itself. However inside there are two marble plaques on the wall. One remembers 19 men from Fairlight families who died in WW1. Similarly the other remembers 4 men from WW2.
