Valori. Brief glimpses of the
inside of the chapel show the ceremony

venue: the White Horse in Brundall.
A new war memorial, in the form
of a shard, was dedicated at a special ceremony
on Saturday November 10, 2018. The event was
accompanied by a two-day exhibition at Brundall
Memorial Hall, which continued on Sunday
November 11, and featured life on the home
front, notably the work of the Brundall
Auxiliary War Hospital, and stories of the local
servicemen killed in action.
about our history and
Brundall in Norfolk is a large Broadland village
about seven miles east of Norwich off the road to
Yarmouth. It is on the River Yare and has
two railway stations. The population was a mere 63
in 1836 but once Norfolk’s first railway was
opened in 1844 it grew over the years to the
approximately 5,000 that it is today.
