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.

Extract from Trade Union Members, Service & Casualties 1914-1918 - Typographical Circular, page 7:

SEC.-LIEUT. W. P. HUMPHREY, CAMBRIDGE
We learn with extreme regret of the death of Sec.-Lieut. W. Pryor Humphrey, of the London Regiment, which occurred on May 28. He joined the Cambs. Regiment in 1914, and went to France in February, 1915, where he was for more than two years. He afterwards gained a commission in the London Regiment, and returned to France on April 19 of this year. Lieutenant Humphrey was 29 years of age and married. The local Press say of him: "Lieut. Humphrey's fine character and lovable personality had won him many friends in the town." This was especially true in regard to the T.A. Coming from Watford (Chesham section), he helped in the formation of the Cambridge Branch, and always took a keen interest in its doings. He will be sadly missed by his fellow members, by whom he was held in the greatest esteem and respect, his upright, honourable character and conduct being recognised by all. He was truly "one of the best."

Extract from a local paper (unknown paper and date):

"DIED LIKE A MAN."
Cambridge Lancer Killed In
Action.

Mr. and Mrs. Kerry of 275, Mill-road. Cambridge, have received news of the death of their son, Corporal Walter Birbeck Kerry, of the 16th Lancers, who was mortally wounded in action at Le Glairet. The sad news conveyed to them in the following letter from Squadron-Sergeant A. V. Cobb. of the same regiment:

“Just a few lines to let you know that poor Walter passed away on the 8th, the day before yesterday. I was with him on patrol when he was shot, and fetched him back. Poor young Horlock, of Cambridge, was thrown from his horse and hurt at the same time, but he is not seriously injured. Walter was shot about one o'clock, and died about 4.30 p.m. He was conscious up to the finish I was not with him when he died but the two fellows who were with him told me he had a very respectable funeral. He was buried by the side of Lieut. Gough, of the R.A. He was shot and buried at a place called Le Glairet. When I left him he told me to tell you all at home and his young lady that his last thoughts were of you all, and that he died like a man. I cannot explain all to you in this letter, but if I should live to return to Cambridge to see you and let you know all. I daresay you heard Walter speak of me. I live at Palgrave, just outside, Diss, and I know your brother well who lives at Diss. I cannot explain any more now, but will see you if I should be spared. I will close with deepest sympathy, remaining yours respectfully, A. V. Cobb.

Extract from Trade Union Members, Service & Casualties 1914-1918 - Typographical Circular, page 11:

PRIVATE L. L. MILLER, CAMBRIDGE.
It is with deep regret that we have to announce the death of Private L. L. Miller (Liverpool Regiment), a prominent member of the Cambridge Branch, who died of wounds in the 3rd General Australian Hospital, Abbeville, on September 30. Private Miller (who was 30 years of age, and leaves a widow and one child) was one of the original few who joined the Cambridge Branch on its inception nine years ago. He had always been one of its most respected and enthusiastic members and held office both as president and vice-president. He was home on leave only a few weeks before his death, and was looking forward eagerly to renew his acquaintance with the branch and its activities. Private Miller was employed as a compositor at Messrs. W. Heifer and Sons, and he will be greatly missed by all the members of the staff, with whom he was deservedly popular. He joined the colours under the Derby scheme in September, 1916, and had been in France about 15 months at the time of his death.
