Sussex Graves and Gravestones

Tonight here at Bridge Cottage we were treated to a fascinating talk by Kevin Gordon

Bridge Cottage was packed for this fully booked talk where Kevin took us on a virtual tour of interesting Sussex gravestones and graveyards.  One such story was that of an Irishman, Edward Kenealy. He was a lawyer who was as colourful as his grave.  Located at St Helen’s Church in Hangleton, to the north-west of Brighton, is the remarkable grave.   Kevin told us about the brightly coloured stones set into the grave-slab in the form of a mosaic cross.

This grave lead Kevin to explore the story of Edward Kenealy further.  Read the full story in Kevin’s blog here –
