KNAPWELL - Roll of Honour

Compiled and copyright © 2001 Dave Edwards

There are no memorials in the village or church and no names are listed on the Ely Cathedral County First World War Memorial. It is therefore assumed that no men were killed. This is one of only two or three villages in Cambridgeshire where this is the case.

The following names are listed in the Ely Cathedral Second World War Book of Remembrance.

1939-1945

George Henry DESBOROUGH

Pte. 2nd Bt. Bedfordshire & Hertfordshire Reg., died 28th June 1944, age 22. Son of Annie Desborough, and stepson of Walter J. Rolt, of Knapwell, Cambridgeshire. Buried in ASSISI WAR CEMETERY, Italy.

Benjamin ELLIS

Gnr. 4 Regt. Royal Horse Artillery, died 25th October 1942, age 32. Buried in EL ALAMEIN WAR CEMETERY, Egypt.
