The remains of a medieval cross, standing in St Andrews churchyard. Listed and scheduled.
Sorry dont know about the monument but would be very interested once something is known as my husbands grt grt grandfather was the Rector of St Andrews, Brockley for about 25 years being John Alexander DRAKE. I have been searching fruitlessly for several years for any other living descendants of the Drake family as there were 13 children. Our line is from Armine Drake who emigrated to New Zealand in 1899 along with his brother John Furley Drake. To my knowledge there are only 5 male Drakes from this line living today and we have 3 of them!
I am also after any reference to the Drake family within the St Andrews Church and the Rectory in which they resided. Can you tell me if the Rectory is to the right of the church???
Thank you very much

There should be some sort of monument or acknowledgment to the Drake family who were Reverend John Alexander Drake of Brockley St Andrews for about 30 years from 1865 to 1890. They resided at the rectory and i have no photos of them at all - very strange. 13 children and not one photo. I would love to visit one day, to see and touch and walk in the church my great grandfather was baptised in ................
