    We’re pleased to announce that following the success of last year’s Great War guided walks at Greatness Cemetery, we will be leading a group on Saturday 9 November from 11.00 until 12.30.

    The walk is free and available to all, including children aged ten and above. Please bear in mind that some of the ground we will be walking is uneven and may be muddy depending on the weather, so suitable footwear and clothing is advisable.

    Local historian Matthew Ball will speak about the Great War, telling a diverse range of stories regarding local people buried in the cemetery, from a Crimean veteran who appeared at early recruitment meetings, to a local victim of a Zeppelin raid, a Conscientious Objector’s family, and officers and men of The (Queen’s Own) Royal West Kent Regiment.

    The tour includes graves in the care of The Commonwealth War Graves Commission and many private memorials.

    To book, or for any other queries, please email matt@sevenoaksww1.org
