Rede is a village and civil parish in the St Edmundsbury district of Suffolk in eastern England.[1] Its location is situated South East of Chedburgh. In 1887 Rede was described as being "7 miles S[outh] W[est] of Bury St Edmonds, 1224 ac[res], pop[ulation] 224".[2]

Its population in 2011 was 131 residents according to the Census taken in that year.[3]

The institutional history of Rede explains that it has always been a place of housing for agricultural workers, craftsmen and the lower class in general. It is thought that the name "Rede" originates from a mercer from London, William Rede who was granted the manor and advowson of nearby medieval site of Beccles.[4]
