WELCOME TO ALL OUR VISITORS
A very warm welcome to all our visitors,
and especially to all those
ex-Sutton & Wawne folk who
may have long since left these 'gentle climes'
for other abodes in the far corners of this globe.
With special greetings for those of you now settled
in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa or
the USA, and anywhere within our Commonwealth and
this great world-wide family of English-speaking peoples.
For all of you who were born, worshipped
or were married here in Sutton or Wawne,
or have loved ones resting here -
to you all, wherever in the world you live now,
an especially warm welcome indeed.
We're pleased you have discovered us -
Clicking the buttons further below will start or stop a short peal
of Sutton's bells. They were added at Christmas, 2003.
Photos of all 14 CWGC War Graves in St James' churchyard are
posted on the appropriate page, added for Armistice Day in 2009.
Photos of the further 5 Family War Graves and Memorials were
added in time for Armistice Day in 2014. A database of the 420+ men
on all of our memorial plaques was started in 2014, and complete in time
for the 2018 anniversaries. The new plaques can be seen on the War Memorial ~
