those, from Burpham and Jacobs Well who gave their lives in the 1914-1918 war

‘Burpham Will Remember Them’

In the early 1900s Burpham was in the Parish of Worplesdon and together with Jacob’s Well was essentially one large, scattered, community.

Commemorative Service

where those named on the memorial who gave their lives in WW1 will be especially remembered.

Please note: Because Burpham Church is small we are making this service, initially, a ‘by invitation’ event to ensure that all family members who wish to attend may be able to do so.

We would welcome any others who would wish to attend but, if the church is full, it may be difficult.

We hope to provide a PA system to relay the service outside to anyone who cannot be accommodated in the church itself.

Sunday, August 3rd - (afternoon, time to be finalised)

Flower Festival

Themed on WW1, where local groups and individuals are contributing floral displays, in memory of each of the 18 men named on the memorial.
