Abstract

The memorial contains 144 names of the fallen, and this research was undertaken to trace their family history and war story. In total, 123 records were discovered, consisting of 122 men and 1 woman, revealing how the experience of a small parish could represent the scale of loss throughout the country. Two names on the memorial stand out, Ethel Parker, the lone woman commemorated in St. Gregory’s, and Edward Mannock VC, the well known fighter pilot.
