From the Sussex Express, 26th March 1920



Mr Mark Burgess, who is well-known in Glynde, died very suddenly on Monday afternoon. He was 77 yeas of age, and although he had been very poorly for some time, he had managed to keep about. On Monday, about 4.30 in the afternoon, he went out into the backyard, where he fell down and expired immediately. Mr Burgess was a native of Wilmington, but had lived in Glynde between 30 and 40 years. He had two sisters, one living in Alfriston and the other in Lewes, and a brother in Kent. Mrs Burgess only pre-deceased her husband by about three weeks. As the doctor had recently attended Mr Burgess, an inquest was deemed unnecessary.
