Frensham, St Mary the Virgin

Contemporary reports list three men as Frensham ringers, one appears on the Central Council Roll of Honour. However, it appears there was some overlap with the Farnham band with Charles Edwards acting as tower captain at both churches, F W Elliott is sometimes named as a Frensham ringer, but is listed on the Farnham page on this site.

  • Corporal Percy Fowler † Killed 18 August 1916 — 8th Battalion, The Buffs (East Kent Regiment).
  • F Clark
  • G Chuter

Lieutenant John William Russell also rang at Frensham between 1907 and 1910 (having moved at the same time as F W Elliott, also coming to work in the plant nursery of tower captain of both towers, Charles Edwards), but is listed on the original roll as a Dorking ringer, so is not included in this list. He originally hailed from Ewhurst where he had learnt to ring.

Information about today’s ringers and the bells can be found on the Guildford Diocesan Guild website.
