This news story caught my eye yesterday. After a few checks online I think it is the church my grandparents were married in. Looking at their marriage certificate, I see they were married at All Saints Church, Fleet on 19 December 1915.
This is also confirmed in the Surrey, England, Marriages Index, and the England and Wales FreeBMD Index lists their wedding in the district of Hartley Wintney which is just two and a half miles from Fleet.
It is a very sad story, police and the fire services were called to the church around 5.50pm on 22 June 2015. The church was devastated by the fire which destroyed it’s roof. Five fire engines were called to the blaze, which took over three hours to get under control. The church was built around 150 years ago in the 1860s.
A 16 year old boy has been arrested on suspicion of arson.
