Will is on the Sussex OPC site, my thanks go to Lisa Smith for transcribing it and to Mark Collins Sussex OPC co-ordinator who does a briliant job with that website
Memorial inscription - if any
Not found though there are other Juniper graves right beside the south wall of the church (west end) (have been told there's another one near a tree so will check on my next visit)
Found the grave virtually underneath a small yew tree, his inscription is difficult to read though name is legible other details are hareder, it's a double gravestone and his wife's side is much more legible. Will visit again when light is better .
