Allhallows Remembers

Inside the parish church of All Saints, Allhallow,s there is a memorial board recording the names of parishioners who served in WW1 alongside the names of those who lost their lives during that war. To commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the Armistice and as a small contribution to the application of Heritage Lottery Funding to preserve the church building I have researched the lives of the men who died.

I have looked to show their family background and what life was like for them before the Great War and what happened to their families after the war.

Where the records of their military service have survived I have included them, but unfortunately many of the records of soldiers who served during WW1 were lost in a fire resulting from enemy action during WW2 - known as the Burnt Soldiers’ Records.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
We will remember them.
