Chattri Memorial Service 2021

Regrettably, due to the effects of Covid 19 and in line with Government guidelines, the Chattri Memorial Service will NOT take place on 13th June this year.

However, I’m pleased to say that we have managed to hold a small Service, which will be shown on YouTube.

Click here to see the film of the Chattri Memorial Service 2021 which will be available to view from Sunday 13th June at 2.30 pm, the date and time when it would have taken place under normal circumstances. Please note it will not be available to view until this date and time.

I hope you will be able to virtually join in the Service and pay your respects in your own private way.

I am grateful to Brighton and Hove City Council for their financial backing and we were able to film it under Covid restrictions.

The Chattri is a memorial built to honour the Indian dead of the First World War. It stands on the Downs near Patcham at the place where Hindu and Sikh soldiers who died in Brighton war hospitals during 1914-1915 were cremated. It was unveiled by the Prince of Wales on 21st February 1921.  

Congratulations to Davinder Dhillon on winning the Points of Light Award  in July 2017 for his outstanding voluntary service for the Chattri Memorial.

Photos From 2019 Service Please feel free to use thse photos in relation to the Chattri Organisation, but if they're used outside of the Chattri Organisation by commercial / professional organisations (e.g. press / newspapers or other organisations and external websites) then they must be credited with the following : "Phil Duffy / MusePhotographic" . This just helps me keep some professional control over the images. Private use (e.g. family members putting images on Facebook) doesn't require any crediting.
