Is the Brightling graveyard (and Mad Jack’s Mausoleum) open late in the afternoon and/or early evening?

Just wondering if there are any older members of the Brightling community that may need shopping doing for them during this Covid-19 crisis. I am happy to help to shop and deliver to help those that should be staying at home to keep well. Obviously no charge just to help those that need it. I live in the village and am a mum of two. Does anyone know who I could contact to find out who may need some help?

Hi my parents live in the hollingrove area of brightling, Ive made sure they are ok by phone but just a wave and walk past their door I’m sure would be appreciated.

Hi, I am an Australian researching my Relf family history which goes back as far as the early 1800’s in Brightling. According to the census, my ancestors lived in Stonesdown Cottage (1851), Battle Road (1861), Grants Cottage (1871). I am confident these are the same place but just named differently. Are those places still standing? Could anyone explain the differences in names? I’ve looked on google maps and can find a Stonesdown Cottage in the area I assume it was – down the road from Hollingbrook Farm. Where there lots of families living in the one ‘house’? Or lots of Stonesdown cottages called different names depending on who owned them? Lot of questions. The more I look, the more questions I have 🙂 Any information or even photos would be gratefully received. Thank you.
