Memorial Benches

The inscriptions below are from public benches with memorial texts, the aim being to record as many of the inscriptions as could be found in Seaford. The majority are Memorial Inscriptions and complement those found in more traditional sites such as the Cemetery. Some are also commemorated elsewhere in Seaford. The bulk were collected in the summer of 2014, with an additional group at South Barn in late 2016 and a few added as found.
They are presented by location in approximate surname order, starting at The Buckle (Seaford Yacht Club) at the western end of the seafront and working south-eastward along the promenade and up and over Seaford Head, before returning inland. The layout attempts to render the sense rather than mimic the originals.
