World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Stewart Norman 2006
additional information Martin Edwards

The memorial is dedicated to the men who fell in both World War 1 and World War 2 and is in the form of a square obelisque and is located in the Town Park, Bishops Stortford, just off the A1250 where it crosses the River Stort. There are 208 names for World War 1 and 106 for World War 2. A lot of this information has come from the local newspaper, Herts and Essex Observer in the Births, Marriages and Deaths section and the names have then been tied with the Commonwealth War Graves Commisison, Soldiers Died in the Great War CD and Army Roll of Honour - World War II CD entries.

Obituary: In Loving Memory of

Pte. Alexander Black Machray

(Killed in action in France).

The sad news was received from official sources on Tuesday by Mr. and Mrs F. Machray, of Apton Road, that their second son, Private Alexander Black Machray, Royal Fusiliers, was killed in action in France on September 21st. On the same day the bereaved parents were the recipients of a letter from an officer in their son’s Regiment supplementing the official intelligence. In this letter the officer wrote: “I deeply regret having to inform you that your son, Private A. B. Machray, was killed in action during operations of the 20th to 21st inst. As you have read, the Battalion was in an attack at this time and as almost all of the men in your son’s section became casualties, I’m afraid I cannot give you much information concerning his death. Although I have not known him for very long I had found his worth as a soldier and a man, and with his comrades he was very popular, and they wish to join me in this expression of deepest symphony.”

Deceased was a young man of considerable ability and had a promising career. Before enlisting he was employed as a clerk in office of the Town Surveyor Mr. R. S. Scott, and was a valued member of the Town Band. A member of a musical family, he was always ready to give his services to musical efforts in the town, while his hobby --sketching -- he proved himself to possess marked ability. In outdoor sports also he was a footballer of merit. Early in the war he offered his services, but was twice rejected before ultimately enlisting under the Derby Scheme in January, 1916, when he was attached to the Suffolk Regiment. Subsequently he was he was transferred to the Bedfordshire Regiment, with whom he went to France in July last, soon after which he was transferred to the London Regiment (Royal Fusiliers). He had only been in France about eight weeks when he met his death. In civilian life he was also employed by the Bishop’s Stortford Gas Company as a clerk. He was in his 24th year, and as a lad was a member of St. Michael’s Church Choir. His parents have two other sons serving, Private Frank Machray, in England with a labour battalion of the Suffolk Regiment; and Private Charles Machray, Royal Army Medical Corps, serving in Palestine. All three brothers, with their father, were members of the Town Band.

Note: HMS Queen Mary was a Royal Navy battlecruiser, of the Queen Mary class, however more generally viewed as a member of the similar Lion class. She was armed with eight 13.5 inch (343 mm) guns, displaced 27,000 tons, and was capable of steaming at 28 knots (52 km/h). Externally she differed from her two half-sisters in that she had round funnels (instead of oval), and had her 4 inch guns all on the same deck.

Upon commissioning, she joined the 1st Battlecruiser Squadron. On 28th August 1914, she took part in the 1st Battle of Heligoland Bight. She was under refit at the time of the Dogger Bank battle, so she did not take part in that engagement. After completing her refit, she re-joined the 1st Batttlecruiser Squadron.

She was under the command of Captain Cecil I. Prowse at the Battle of Jutland on 31st May 1916. She had fired about 150 13.5 in shells and scored 4 hits on the SMS Seydlitz, but the Seydlitz hit back. Queen Mary was first hit above the right gun on 'Q' turret; this gun was out of action, but the left gun kept firing. Shortly after, more 30.5 cm (12 inch) shells hit her forward near 'A' and 'B' turrets, and another hit 'Q' turret. The forward magazine exploded, the ship listed to port, and more explosions followed as the ship was sinking. All but twenty of her 1,275 crew were lost (two of the survivors were picked up by German ships).
