Indian Soldiers in WW1
Chattri Group Grant Award

The Chattri Memorial Group

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to proceed with the Chattri Service 2020 as planned on Sunday 14th June this year.

This decision has been made in line with the Government's restrictions regarding travelling and social distancing.

However, we felt it was our duty to hold a Service, albeit in a small way, to honour the Hindu and Sikh soldiers cremated at the Chattri.

Therefore there will be a link here on Sunday morning to view a Service and pay your own tribute.

Thank you.

Chattri Memorial Service 2020

The Chattri is a memorial built to honour the Indian dead of the First World War. It stands on the Downs near Patcham at the place where Hindu and Sikh soldiers who died in Brighton war hospitals during 1914-1915 were cremated. It was unveiled by the Prince of Wales on 21st February 1921.  

Congratulations to Davinder Dhillon on winning the Points of Light Award  in July 2017 for his outstanding voluntary service for the Chattri Memorial.

Photos From 2019 Service Please feel free to use thse photos in relation to the Chattri Organisation, but if they're used outside of the Chattri Organisation by commercial / professional organisations (e.g. press / newspapers or other organisations and external websites) then they must be credited with the following : "Phil Duffy / MusePhotographic" . This just helps me keep some professional control over the images. Private use (e.g. family members putting images on Facebook) doesn't require any crediting.
