BLOGG, MM Joseph Andrew Martin
Private 327898, 1st Battalion, Cambridgeshire Regiment. Died of wounds 4 September 1918. Aged 38. Born Cheddington, Buckinghamshire, enlisted Cambridge.

Buried in DAOURS COMMUNAL CEMETERY EXTENSION, Somme, France. Plot IV. Row E. Grave 12. See also Granchester

From a roll compiled by Caroline Burkitt that can be found in Cambridge Library, reference section:

Jo Blogg was born in Cheddington, Buckinghamshire on 25th September 1881. Why his parents were living there is a mystery. His father Joseph Nicholas Blogg, came from Southrepps, near Cromer, on the Norfolk Coast, and although it has not been possible to trace his ancestry with complete certainty, there are records of Bloggs having lived around the Cromer area from 1750. At the turn of the century Joseph and his wife, Sophia, came to live in Metron house cottage, Grantchester, and Joseph was a gardener, first to Mr. William Bateson, the great exponent of Mendelism, and, after 1911 to Mr. Lister. Jo came with them and took a job as college shoe black at Downing. There he met Rose Squires, the widow of a hairdresser in East Road, and a bedder at the colege, and they married in 1907. For a while they lived in Broad Street and later moved to 56, Catherine Street. Their children, Gladys and Percy were born in 1907 and 1910. After the outbreak of war, Jo was called up into the 1/1st Cambridgeshire Regiment as a stetcher bearer and was sent to France. On 25th April 1918 he won the Military Medal at Voormezeele, for gallantry in the field. His twin brother William was also in France, and although not serving together, on the morning of 28th August 1918, they were both wounded within half an hour of each other. William survived after his leg was amputated, but Jo died of his wounds on 4th September. His son vividly remembers that day , his mother was cleaning a gas lamp at their home in Catherine Street when the telegram arrived. Jo is buried in Daours Communal Cemetery Extension in France, and as well as being remembered in Grantchester, his name is on the war memorial in St.Philips church, Thoday Street. On 24th November 1918, a memorial service was held in Grantchester church for Jo Blogg, Joseph Greygoose and William Wilson.
