I am still working on the memorial page to those who gave their lives in the Great War of 1914-19. As part of my research I have been working through local newspaper archives and have now found a report containing the names of those young men from Old Brampton who made the ultimate sacrifice and who’s names were inscribed on the memorial at St Peter and St Paul’s Church. The memorial was unveiled on 7 November 1920 and commemorates the names of 25 young men killed in the conflict.
At the time of writing only two of those are already commemorated on the role of honour attached to this site. I shall now be starting work to add the remainder.
If you have any information about these individuals which will help us learn more of their story, please let me know.
There are also many young men remembered on the Brampton St Thomas War Memorial who’s names I don’t yet have, if anyone is able to help by photographing the name panels I would be most grateful.
The following names are from the Old Brampton memorial:
Charles Edward Hill
Robert Taylor Wright
