I sang in St. Anne's choir from about 1934 till the church was demolished. My mother was church cleaner and as a toddler I followed her round with her mop and bucket. Witcombe, a teacher at Varndean was choir master, followed by Stanley Houlgate. Lovely church with fine sculptures. I suppose they made money when they knocked it down. Why, I don't know, because they would never have demolished St. George's which is a listed building. Some names of the choirboys: Jarman, Ford, Lynn, Hope, Ford, Valentine.

My grandfather's name was on a WW2 memorial plaque in St Anne's Church. Would anybody know what happened to this plaque when the church was demolished?

Stephen, it's only a suggestion, but you could try making enquiries with St Mary's Church, St James's Street.
