First World War Memorials

The names of sixteen men are listed on the War Memorial at Great Easton, which was constructed in 1918 – before the war was over.  Six of these men are also listed on a brass plaque attached to a prayer desk in Tilty Church; this was donated to the church as a memorial of the Great War. Click on each of the names in the table below for more information.

Of the sixteen men named on the local memorials, seven died in France, five in Flanders, two in Gallipoli, one in Jerusalem, and one in England in 1919.  Some have known graves in military cemeteries, some are listed on memorials to the missing, and one is buried in a church graveyard.  More information about these memorials, in the countries where the men died, can be found by clicking on the following locations:

The information about these men has been compiled from several sources, including the 1901 and 1911 census returns, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website, WW1 Medal Index Cards, and Essex Regimental Histories.  We are extremely grateful to the Essex Branch of the Western Front Association ( ) for providing us with additional information about these men and the battles in which they fought, and for the photographs from Jerusalem.

Commemorative Certificates – like the ones accessed via each of the individual pages above – can be downloaded from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website ( ), where there is the facility to search both for individuals and cemeteries.

Please get in touch if you notice any errors in the information published here, if you know anything else about any of these men – or if you have any other material relating to local people during the First World War that can be published on this website.
