West Brentford 1914-1919 WW1 Memorial

The war memorial originally stood in the churchyard of St Lawrence's Church, on the south side of the High Street near the road side. It is inscribed 'In memory of our heroes of West Brentford who fell during the Great War 1914-1919'. David Bright has researched the history of this memorial.

The memorial was restored and moved to an area outside Brentford Library where other memorials stand: the re-dedication ceremony took place on 19th September 2009.

The memorial lists 172 names in four columns and another 5 names (omissions?) on the left side of the memorial. I have transcribed the entries and put them into surname order. The information provided is

  • Seq(uence): the sequence records the position of the name on the memorial; those starting 'S' are recorded on the side of the memorial
  • Surname
  • Initials
  • Notes: I hope descendants will be able to contribute some brief details about the men recorded on the memorial; please contact me if you can help; an '*' at the end of notes indicates that information has been deduced from sources such as the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC.org) or ancestry (ancestry.co.uk) web sites rather than provided by an individual
