World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Chris Comber 2013

This list is taken from photographs of the War Memorial taken by a professional photographer in March 2010. The few extra names which have been added are highlighted. Some details included have been taken from documents supplied (at considerable expense,) by the Norfolk Record Office. These were in rather spidery writing and very difficult to read. There were many problems with deciphering the information, but after all this time one can only do ones best.

There are 27 names from the memorial plus 1 extra - ELLIS, CT.
