My Grandmother and Grandfather Edith and Frank Allcorn lived at Lower Bevendean Farm from 1908 until 1942.
Although the farm had a Brighton postal address it was in Falmer parish to start with and my grandparents worshiped there for many years. (I believe the postal address was Brighton 3. A very early post code.)
My grandmother died in 1949 and wanted to be buried at Falmer. The Rector said it would cost £50.00, a lot of money in those days. Being close to Brighton many people wanted to be buried in this picturesque spot.
Ten years later he joined his wife.
