Category Archives: Tearle Meets

Every 2 years we hold a Tearle meet in England. This allows Tearle relatives to meet and get to know each other. Here we share impressions of the meets and what was shared at them.


TearleMeet 2016

We called this TearleMeet6 and it was held at Stanbridge Church, on Saturday 25 June. Elaine spent a large amount of time setting up two huge posters of all the places we visited on our England, European and Gallipoli tours of 2015 and 2016, visiting and documenting the sites of burial and commemoration of all the Tearle casualties of both world wars. It would appear there are only three whom we will never be able to visit, two killed in the Great War and one killed in WW2:

Sidney Tearle 1891, of Dunstable, buried in Alexandria;
Albert Ernest Tearle 1819, of Sutton, Surrey, buried in Baghdad;
Jeffrey Parkhurst Tearle 1914, of Lebong, India, buried in Acroma, Libya.

There was a feature poster of the Roll of Honour, as well as a large picture of the Menin Gate memorial and the Tyne Cot memorial, of Ypres.
