Vandalism and Theft at Cemetery in Eastbourne

Country: United Kingdom

Date of incident: September 15, 2020


On September 15th, the war memorial depicting Christ at St Saviour’s Church, was vandalized. It was the second time this year that the memorial was targeted, this time the lead was stolen. The directors of two rootfing companies offered to repair the damage for free.

 “We feel that although all theft is appalling, the act of vandalism carried out on a war memorial dedicated to service men and woman who have lost their lives in protecting this country is outrageous. We therefore made the decision to restore the war memorial on behalf of St Saviour’s Church, as a gesture of goodwill.” -Paul Stredwick from Clarke Roofting company.
