Shoreham & Southwick

Shoreham Fort Shared Learning

Shoreham Fort Shared learning Project

We are looking for the Volunteers who manned the Fort in 1890s and are working in conjunction with the people who run the Fort now. We have found many of the men did not originate from the Shoreham area, they came from all over the UK, and after they were discharged ended up by travelling, the furthest went to Australia and was killed in a tram accident.

The Project
There were many soldiers stationed at the Fort during the late 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. We have a list of some 75 men who were there. We have started researching their names and have unearthed some interesting facts and will be continuing to do so. One of the first names found was the grandfather of a second cousin of one of our U3A members and we now have a long list of their family.

We use Ancestry and Find My past and indeed any other Family History websites to locate these men and see just where they moved from to live in this area, and then bring our findings to the group meetings to share with each other.

For more information contact the Coordinator by email by clicking on the bluebird box at the top right of this page.

We meet on a Wednesday,usually in in Room 5 at 2.00pm (upstairs and along the corridor to the right) at the Shoreham Centre.

Dates for 2018:

21st November Room 5a#
