The project explored Marlow’s connections with the community in the Wycombe district. George Alexander Gratton was one of the first Vincentians to arrive in Georgian Britain. Following a short and tragic life, George sadly died at the age of four years nine months. His body is buried in the graveyard at All Saints Church, Marlow. With this grant and the support of Marlow Museum and Marlow Society, SV2G was able to share and celebrate George’s life. The project delivered workshops and talks with community groups and schools, a touring exhibition, a literary pack and a new George Alexander Gratton legacy website.
