Great Shefford War Memorial Research

Great Shefford War Memorial

Plans for an exhibition 13th – 14th September 2014 to commemorate the men named on the Great Shefford War Memorial are going well and the response to an appeal for family members to get in touch has been encouraging. However, we still know very little about some of the men and are seeking their relatives. These are the men who died:


Brown, Albert William

Brown, Brice

Brown, Ernest

Brown, William

Brown, William Elijah

Davis, Frank

Goodall, Tom

Hamblin, Jesse

Harris, George

Hobbs, Alfred Howard

Hudson, Arthur

Hudson, Thomas

Langford, Stewart

Perris, Albert Charles

Pike, Edward

Purton, Alfred Sidney

Rolfe, Richard James

Sampson, Arthur William

Sampson, Edwin John

Seymour, Ernest

Walters, Frederick William


Brown, Arthur Edwin George

Pike, Charles Edward

Purton, Frederick Charles Haig

Weeks, Leslie John

Whatley, Timothy

Do you know a relative of one of these men? Do you know the surnames of any sisters or daughters who married? Do you know where families went when they moved away?

If you think you might have any useful information, or want to know more, please phone Liz Saunders on 01488 648278 or email
