NEWPORT PAGNELL - WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © 2003 Martin Edwards

The memorial sits outside the church in the town of Newport Pagnell. The names are listed by the branch of the services that each man served with but for ease here each set of men has been listed in alphabetical order. Some memorials hold sad tales and this has the two sets of brothers from the two Burnell families, one set of twins killed in the same battalion, of the same Regiment on the same day.
