Not commemorated on a memorial

The list below contains all men we have identified who died in the Great War and have a connection to Whitchurch and the surrounding villages, but who are not commemorated on any local memorials.

This is an ongoing project, information will be added to the website over the coming weeks and months. It is hoped that the people of Whitchurch, Shropshire and beyond will get involved and provide additional information and images for these men.

Not commemorated on a memorial — 2 Comments

  1. I am interested in finding out more about Charles Evans mentioned in the above list. Are you able to supply any further information about him please? My husband is about to go to France to visit the grave of his grandfather Harry Evans, and we are trying to find out if this Charles Evans was a relation so his grave can be visited as well?
    Many thanks

    • The Charles Evans buried at Tilstock is from Essex. Tilstock is the nearest village to Prees Heath camp, so presumably this was where he died. He will therefore not have a war grave in France. Hope this is of help. Regards Judith (volunteer curator)
