Have we remembered everybody?

Actually we haven’t.

The following are the names recorded on the St. John The Baptist Church war memorial who died during World War I. There are five other names on the memorial who are not included in this list, these are soldiers who died during World War II. 

The 12 soldiers my project focuses on, whose families lived in Feckenham, are marked * and their biographies can be read here:
