History Of St. Margaret's Church War Memorial
The St. Margaret's Church Ifield War Memorial from articles posted in the Sussex & Surrey Courier state that the effort to create a memorial in Ifield seems to have been organised by the local vicar, Rev R.W. Loveband and a committee of local parishioners at St Margaret’s Church in November 1918, just a few weeks after the Armistice.
An article in the newspaper on the 26th June 1919 states that a service of dedication for the memorial took place at St Margaret’s Church on the evening of Friday 20th June 1919 (just a week before the formal end of the First World War with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles).
A full report recording the service of dedication is given. The article also states that the memorial was built of Cornish silver-grey granite and cost £120, the sum was raised by the people of the parish through subscription.
