I wondered if I could contact Margaret as My Father worked at Chillmead farm and often helped out at Battlebridge farm from 1945-1963 I'm doing some research on the places I have been involved in over my life and wondered if she would be interested in contacting me and what connection she had with the farms and Merstham.

This picture shows All Saints church in South Merstham in 1943, having been devastated by a parachuted land mine (meant for the nearby railway line) which killed 10 people in April 1941.

With thanks to Alex Hunter, author of "20th Century Merstham".

My father was church warden at All Saints from 1943 until 1951. We lived in Nutfield road and I went to Merstham school before going to Reigate grammar school when I was 11 years.I remember my father talking about the Canadiens building Canada Hall.

Leslie Frank Aldridge from Deal posted this comment on Thursday 10 October 2019 15:09:07.

My godfather, Newton Hazel, was churchwarden of All Saints at least up to 1943. The Canadian Royal Engineers padre was billeted on him.He was responsible for getting his troops to build the little church which was consecrated in 1943. I was there that day.It is now Canada Hall. The padre was killed in Normandy in 1944.
