Chattri Memorial Service 2022

The Annual Service will take place on Sunday 12th June 2022 at 2.30 pm. at the Chattri, Patcham, Standen Lane, Brighton, BN1 8ZB. Cars are able to drive right up to the Chattri on this day. Please note the Memorial is situated in a field and therefore the ground will be uneven. There are no facilities available at the site and seating is limited. Please bring your own foldable chairs if required.

Following the Ceremony, refreshments will be served at Patcham High School, Ladies’ Miles Road, Brighton BN1 8PB. An exhibition which traces the role of the soldiers from India to the Western Front will be on display at the school. Parking is limited at the school but there is off-road parking nearby.

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.
