WELCOME TO OUR WEB SITE
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, 2009.
Photos of the further 5 Family War Graves and Memorials were
added in time for Armistice Day 2014. A database of the 420+ men
on all of our memorial plaques is now being compiled
here in the Museum ~ Lest We Forget
If you happen to be viewing from 'somewhere warm'
and miss the freshness of Sutton in former years ago,
perhaps you'd like to see our Little Slideshow
. . . or a couple of tiny bits of video of Sutton Churchyard,
now working again at the very end of the Photos Page.
At the last count, this website comprises about 70 pages
of assorted content, from serious history to local events,
plus a few items in a 'more light-hearted' vein,
as well as containing over 500 images.
Folk from the general Hull area may
well find these pages of interest.
May you all enjoy your visit
and brief stay with us.
We hope you will call again.
And of course, if you have a Family History
query we can help with . . . we're here to help !

There's a hole in our ceiling
Where a hole shouldn't be
So we're sad to report
We cannot serve tea.
(not in there, anyway)
If anyone can help us
With donations big or small
We'll soon have it all fixed
To serve tea when you call.
I know that these lines
They follow no rule
You can tell that I never
Ever came to this skool.
