The History Of All Saints' Wickhambrook

Commemoration Of The War Dead


Roll of Honour - click on image to enlarge

As with most churches the names of those who fell in the two great wars are remembered and All Saints' church is no exception. There are at least three other names that should appear on the memorial. These are George Ashman, HJ Last and Major Gascoine Edgeley (who is recorded on the Culford Estate memorial). One hundred and thirty four men from Wickhambrook served in the Great War. One hundred and fourteen returned home and of these there is no record. The twenty Fallen along with the six from WWII are described below.

Further information about those men and others who gave their lives in war can be found on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website at An excellent search facility is available here giving information about those who died in war.

The names shown below are also linked to the excellent website where a full citation of all the men who died in Wickhambrook is given.

Another forces resource is the Forces Reunited site
