WW1 & Memorial
Remembering those fallen during World War 1,
commemorated at St. Bartholomew's

In the little side chapel at St. Bartholomew's, otherwise known as the Memorial Chapel, is a plaque bearing the names of local people who were killed during the two world wars.

During the years 2014 - 2018, we will be remembering those listed there who died during World War 1. Each Sunday during these four years we will pray for a particular person and light a candle in their memory. 

On the anniversaries of their deaths, we will place Certificates of Remembrance on or near the altar. These are taken from the War Graves Commission site where they are remembered in perpetuity. 

There will also be a book available for scrutiny containing all their names and whatever details we have about them, listed in the order in which they died. This book has been compiled from information supplied by Kent Archeology, The War Graves Commission and Ancestry.co.uk.

We have also encouraged members of the congregation to add the names of their relatives to our list so there are a few people in the book who names do not appear on the memorial.

A copy of the book can be downloaded HERE. (It may take a minute or two to download.)

You can also see a list of those we have identified to the right, in date order. Names in brackets are those added to by members of the congregation.

But there are also a number of names we have not been able to trace. So many men with the same surnames died and without any supporting information, it's simply not possible to distinguish which of them are listed on our plaque.

Might you - or someone you know - be able to shed any light on them? It seems so sad to know nothing at all about these poor people, all of whom died in the most terrible and tragic circumstances, so far away from their homes and their loved ones.

We won't give up on our search and any information at all, however, trivial it might seem, might help us trace them. Please CONTACT us through this site if you think you help preserve their memory.

*STOP Press* Thank you Robert Gilchrist for finding James Parker. 

Their names are:

  • Baldwin (no Christian name or initial)
  • A M Bedford
  • Alan Bowen
  • Reginald Collins
  • William Cripps
  • William Davies
  • Charles Ed. Evans
  • J Hawkings
  • Albert Howes
