Charterhouse School
Memorial Chapel

Charterhouse School was founded in 1611 in the City of London. In 1872 it moved from its by then insalubrious surroundings close by Smithfield Meat Market to its present site overlooking Godalming, where it has thriven mightily ever since. Over 3,500 Old Carthusians served in the Great War 1914 - 1919 [including the North Russian campaign], in the forces of Great Britain, its Dominions and its allies, or with those forces in civilian rôles, and at least one with the German army. Of these, some 670 died: about as many as there were boys in the school at any one time at that period.

By 1914 the original 1872 school chapel was no longer large enough comfortably to accommodate the growing numbers of boys and masters. In 1917 a War Memorial Fund was inaugurated and post-war a new chapel, Memorial Chapel designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, was built in honour of the fallen: O.C.s, masters and other school staff. Their names are commemorated on stone panels set in the eastern half walls of the antechapel. Matching panels were later set in the western wall bearing the names of some 340 more who fell in the Second World War 1939 - 1945. Several individual wall plaques have since been added elsewhere in the building, in honour of Carthusians who have given their lives in some of our latter day ‘savage wars of peace’.

See School Tour for panoramic photo tours of some of the school buildings, including Memorial Chapel.

World War 2 details are held on a separate page and World War 1 are held here. Most of the entries below merely restate information to be found in the Charterhouse and Commonwealth War Graves Commission Registers; where these disagree, the C.W.G.C. is invariably followed for military details, including date of death, the Charterhouse Register usually for personal and family details. Sparing use has been made of The Times Digital Archive, and of the Oxford University Roll of Service and the War List of the University of Cambridge. In a few cases information is included from other sources. This is an ongoing project; it is hoped that over time the numbers more fully researched will increase. The compilers will be grateful for further information and corrections which may be e-mailed to Roll of Honour or to Charterhouse School Archives.

The bracketed letter preceding dates at Charterhouse indicates school house. These are:
S Saunderites, V - Verites, G - Gownboys, g - Girdlestoneites [invariably known within the school as Duckites, from its founding housemaster’s supposed duck-like gait], L Lockites, W - Weekites, H - Hodgsonites, D - Daviesites, B - Bodeites, P - Pageites, R Robinites, U Uskites [no longer in existence], d day boy. [Until about the turn of the 19th/20th centuries, Robinites was a ‘passage house’ in which no boy stayed for more than 2 years.]

In many cases, the Charterhouse Register records little or nothing of the man’s intervening career after leaving school, or university, and before joining the forces [or otherwise ‘going to war’]. Brief details are given here where available. As regards the Great War, those who left Charterhouse 1914 - 1918, can reasonably be supposed to have joined up at once; those from the preceding decade or so, before they had properly made their mark. Amongst these, death in the rank of Army Captain or lower is the norm, with the majority still mere one-pipper 2nd lieutenants, many not yet 21 years old. Nothing could better demonstrate that War’s decimation of the rising generation.

Where the Charterhouse Register details a military career pre-Great War, the essentials are stated, including all medals and civil awards, but mentions in despatches are given only for the Great War.

Parents’ and wife’s names and residence are included where available. For the sake of space, and consistency, date of marriage and wife’s maiden name are routinely omitted.

The inclusion on the panels of a few names which seem anomalous, by virtue of date, place or immediate cause of death, may serve to remind us that in the words of one Carthusian author, describing his boyhood 1914 - 1918: ‘The immense, variegated dark wing of war overshadowed everything.’ War’s shadow always extends far beyond the battlefields, and it lingers long after the cessation of hostilities.

In Memorial Chapel itself names are listed by date of school leaving, then alphabetically save where later additions are slipped into available space. Here they are given in plain alphabetical order. A few cross references are included so as to reduce possible confusion as to double and double-barrelled surnames, and titles.

It is to be supposed that most of the names here listed appear on at least one other memorial, and many on several; hence they may well also be found elsewhere on the Roll of Honour web site. In one researched case [P.S. Hadley] no less than four other memorials and/or entries have come to light: one for his preparatory school, one for his Cambridge college, one for the former military hospital in the UK where he died and one for his parish church where he lies buried. Some cross-referenced material is included below, but to chase up every last name would be impractical.

We believe the School’s German war dead, one from each war, to be equally worthy of respectful remembrance; their names and details are given following the main lists.

BLACKBURNE, JOHN GEORGE, Major (temp.) and 2nd in Command, 9th (Service) Battn. The Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regt.), eldest s. of the late Charles Edward Blackburne, of Oldham, by his wife, Mary (now wife of William Shadforth Boger, of St, Leonards-on-Sea), dau. of John Riley; b. Oldham, co. Lancashire, 12 March 1872; educ. Charterhouse, and the Royal Military College, Sandhurst; gazetted 2nd Lieut. 1st Battn. (45th Foot) Sherwood Foresters, 19 Nov. 1892; was promoted a Leiut. 3 April, 1895, and retired 1899. He afterwards served in the 45th Coy., Imperial Yeomanry (Irish hunt Contingent), during the South African War 9Medal), and when the European War broke out in 1914, joined the Reserve of Officers as a Lieut. 2 Sept. He was appointed temp. Major and 2nd in Command of the 9th Battn. of his old Regiment 29 Oct. 1914; went with it to the Dardenelles 30 June, 1915, and was killed in action 21 Aug. following. he was mentioned in Despatches by Sir Ian Hamilton [London gazette, 28 Jan. 1916], for gallant and distinguished service in the field, and general H.P. maxwell wrote: "I saw a great deal of your husband as I had to be constantly up and down the trenches, and it was during this time I fully grasped his value as a soldier. He had no Adjutant or Quartermaster, and only two youngsters with him, and had to do the work of ten, and was always so full of good spirits and encouragement to his men and example to all, and, above all, never complaining. God knows how I felt for them all; no words of mine can express the courage and determination of all ranks, and the debt I owe them is inestimable. We left those lines in the night of the 20th, and went down to the beach and got ready for the big battle next day. We were in Divisional Reserve, with orders to push through at all costs, the attack to start at 3 p.m. The Battalion consisted then of about 1,600 men, and I had to divide the officers who were left so that each battalion had only four or five officers. The Sherwoods were the leading battalion. The last I saw of your husband was on the top of Sula baba, as I gave him and his Commanding Officer final directions, and pointed out the line of attack and wished them good luck. Your husband was in front with the leading company, and I watched them all down the hill and into the plain, and followed myself with Colonel Bosanquet and the rear company. On the low ground I lost sight of the leading lines, and after about a mile I had to stop and send a report, and give instructions to the other battalion who were coming up to the rear. I never saw either of them again." general Hammesley also wrote: "Major Blackburne was perfectly splendid in every way, and everyone was simply devoted to him. While Major Blackburne was in command for some time when the Colonel was wounded, he did splendidly. I couldn't say enough to his praise"; and added that he was a terrible loss to the Regiment and the country, as he was such a fine soldier and so splendid in every way, and all ranks regretted his loss, and a brother officer: "It seems that on the 21st August, about 3 p.m., a party of men were held up by the enemy's fire south of Chocolate Hill. Major Blackburne went to rally these and get them forward. he then shouted, 'Are there any Sherwoods here?' and 15 men got up; these he led forward and was shot while jumping a bush. His body was afterwards recovered and buried by another unit. His loss was felt by all the battalion, and we were left without a leader who had worked wonders in organizing those men left after the advance of Aug. 9th." he was a well-known cricketer, was in the Charterhouse XI., played for the Army in ireland and for Devonshire County, also for the Free Foresters and M.C.C., Na Shuler and Phoenix. he was also much interested in literary work.

His death, of course, was instantaneous. I saw that much before I had to clear out myself; there were none but dead and dying just there. It will comfort you to know he died a brave and gallant soldier, looked on by all of us as one of the best. I can safely add the sympathy of every officer and man to mine. He died at the farthest point the Battn. reached that day," and a brother officer: "I saw Johnston in a redoubt early next morning and during Sunday (8 Aug.), like most of us, he was very tired that day, as we had no sleep and practically no food. He was in good spirits, however. His death has been a great blow to us, as he was very popular, and deservedly so, in the regt. He was confident that he would come back all right." Capt. Johnston m. at Newcastle-on-Tyne, 28 Oct. 1903, Violet Myrtle (Rosemont, Booterstown, Dublin), dau. of Samuel Abraham Walker Waters, Assistant Inspector-Gen., Royal Irish Constabulary, and had three daus.: Myrtle, b. 7 March, 1909; Marjorie Helen, b. 18 Jan. 1911: and Mary Nuala, b. 29 May, 1914.

The news of the death from wounds received at the Dardanelles, of Lieutenant Ernest Lawrence Julian, 7th Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers, will be received with deep regret by his many friends in Trinity College and the Irish Bar. The war has claimed no more promising life from Ireland. Lieutenant Julian who was 36 years of age, and the only surviving son of Mrs Julian 28 Lower Leeson Street, Dublin, had a distinguished career in Trinity College. He won a Classical Scholarship in 1899 and a Senior Moderatorship in 1901. He was called to the Irish Bar in 1903, and a few years afterwards his legal attainments won for him the position of Reid Professor of Law in Trinity College. When the war broke out he was quick to hear his country’s call and he obtained his commission on October 14th, 1914. His death is a loss to scholarship, to the law, and to the profession of arms. The Freeman’s Journal, 31 August 1915.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty at Huwaish on 28 Oct. 1918, and again at Qaiyarah on 30 Oct. 1918. He displayed marked courage in personally reconnoitring in his own unarmoured car, under heavy fire, ground over which the heavier armoured cars could not move. He then returned to guide them to the attack. The success attained by these cars during the operations was largely due to his intimate knowledge of the country and fearless leading over a trackless desert.

In 1912 he went to Australia, where he was employed in business, but returned to England on the outbreak of war, and was given a commission as Temporary 2nd Lieutenant in the New Army in November, 1914. In April, 1915, he was promoted Temporary Lieutenant, and left for Gallipoli Peninsula in May, attached to the Royal Dublin Fusiliers. Lieutenant Leland was at Gabà Tepè only four days. On the day after his arrival he was ordered to advance up the Nullah at the head of his section. On turning a bend they cut through wire entanglements and came on hidden Turkish guns, the fire from which killed almost the entire section, Lieutenant Leland falling with the rest. Only a few survived the action, and the trench which they were seeking was not taken until three weeks afterwards. His body was recovered and buried at Gallipoli.

Lieutenant Leland was very musical, and the writing of music and verse were his principal hobbies.

Commemorated on YPRES (MENIN GATE) MEMORIAL, Ieper, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium. Panel 54 and 56. Member of the Exchange. See also London Stock Exchange War Memorial

Extract from London Gazette 27th October 1914, page 29.

Private Sidney Henry Lowry, from the Inns of Court Officers Training Corps, to be Captain (temporary). Dated 28th October, 1914.

Extract from the Stock Exchange Memorial Book:

CAPTAIN SIDNEY HENRY LOWRY, M.C., Hertfordshire Regiment, was the son of Henry Lowry and was born in 1888. He was educated at Charterhouse and Pembroke College, Cambridge. He became a member of the Stock Exchange in 1913 and a partner in his father's firm, Lowry Bros., about the same time.

He had been a member of his school Cadet Corps and the Cambridge O.T.C. and on the outbreak of war went into training with the Inns of Court O.T.C. He was given his captaincy in the Hertfordshire Regiment in November 1914 and went to the Front in the following January. For some time his Regiment was brigaded with the Brigade of Guards. He served with his Regiment in France for over two years, during which time he saw much heavy fighting and gained the Military Cross. During the spring of 1917 he went through a training course at Aldershot and was recommended for the post of Second in Command of a battalion.

Returning to the front soon afterwards, he was killed at the Battle of St. Julien on 31 July 1917, an action in which the Hertfordshire Regiment gained great distinction.

His Commanding Officer wrote: “Your son was killed in action, whilst gallantly leading his company against the final objective. I don't think a better officer or more gallant man is serving in the army. It is not only as a splendid officer but as a friend that we, who had the privilege of knowing him intimately, will always remember him."

Edward Archibald

Captain. Born 16th June 1894, 2nd son of George Burgh McNair, solicitor, and Isabella Frederica McNair, of 5, Harrington St., Calcutta. He was at Charterhouse [L] 1907 - 1913. He was Head Monitor. He won a scholarship to Magdalen College, Oxford. In the Great War he was commissioned into the Royal Sussex Regiment and joined 9th Bn. For most conspicuous bravery in an action at Hooge on 14th February 1916 he was awarded the V.C. The London Gazette No. 29527, of 28th March, 1916, records: “When the enemy exploded a mine, Lieutenant McNair and many men of two platoons were hoisted into the air, and many men were buried. But, though much shaken, he at once organised a party with a machine gun to man the near edge of the crater and opened rapid fire on a large party of the enemy, who were advancing. The enemy were driven back, leaving many dead. Lieutenant McNair then ran back for reinforcements, and sent to another unit for bombs, ammunition and tools to replace those buried. The communication trench being blocked he went across the open under heavy fire and led up the reinforcements the same way. His prompt and plucky action and example undoubtedly saved the situation.” He was promoted Captain. In August that year he was severely wounded at the Battle of the Somme. His wounds precluded a return to active service but through the influence of Edward, Prince of Wales, whom he had come to know as a fellow-undergraduate at Oxford, on his partial recovery he was appointed to the General Staff and was later attd. G.H.Q. in Italy. He developed chronic dysentery and died in hospital at Genoa on 12th August 1918. His grave is at Staglieno Cemetery, Genoa, Reference: I. B. 32.

By one of the War’s many ironies, McNair’s opposite number as deputy head monitor in 1913 was a Southern Irish boy who remained a non-combatant throughout.

Extract from The Bond of Sacrifice Volume 1 Aug-Dec 1914:

MAJOR D'ARCY WENTWORTH MANDER, 2nd BATTALION DURHAM LIGHT INFANTRY, was the son of Charles John Mander, Esq., of 9, New Square, Lincoln's Inn, and Carlton Road, Putney. He was related to Colonel A. T. Mander, R.E., and General F. D. Mander. Major Mander was born in London in October, 1870, and was educated at Charterhouse and Trinity College, Cambridge. He was first gazetted in 1892, promoted Lieutenant 1896, Captain in 1900, and Major in 1912. He played polo for his regiment in India, and assisted in winning several cups. He also played cricket and football in the regimental team, was a keen golfer, and hunted when opportunity offered.

He was killed while serving with his battalion at the Battle of the Aisne on the 20th September, 1914. The following account of the circumstances attending his death was given by a brother officer: “I was with Major Mander just before he was killed. We went up and relieved a regiment in the trenches just after dark on Saturday, the 19th. As soon as it was daylight the enemy's snipers started bothering us. At about 10 a.m. on Sunday, the 20th, the Germans started an attack, chiefly against the West Yorks, on our right. We could not do anything to help, as the enemy were hidden from us by the ground, and we were expecting all the time to be attacked ourselves. At lunch time I walked along the trenches and joined Major Mander and another officer. Whilst we were eating a party of perhaps one hundred Germans walked in towards the West Yorks trenches, holding their hands above their heads, but still in possession of their rifles. We stood up to watch them, and saw that when they got in among the West Yorks they appeared to bayonet some of them. This was all happening about four hundred yards to our right. We all three jumped up and shouted to the company to stand to, and went to our places in the trenches. The Germans almost immediately faced down our line and opened fire. I was looking along the trenches, and saw Major Mander standing about fifty yards in front of me, also in the trenches. We were all shouting to some men from our trenches (not D.L.I.), who were running back, telling them to stop. This they did, and opened fire on the Germans. Just at that moment I was hit, and did not see any more. It was a very low trick the Germans played on us." Major Mander was a member of the Sports Club. He married Esmé Mary, daughter of the late Samuel Sealey-Allin, Esq., of The College, Youghal, Co. Cork, Ireland, and left two children: a son, age five, and a daughter, age three years.

GUY FITZGERALD WHARTON
LIEUTENANT 2ND BATTN DURHAM
LIGHT INFANTRY. WHO DIED ON 9TH MAY 1915.
OF WOUNDS AT 2ND BATTLE OF YPRES, AGED 20.

Extract from The Bond of Sacrifice - Volume 2 January to June 1915:

LIEUTENANT GUY FITZGERALD WHARTON, 2nd BATTN. DURHAM LIGHT INFANTRY, attd. 1st BATTN. THE KING'S OWN (YORKSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY), was born on the 5th August, 1894, and was the youngest son of Mr. J. H. T. and Mrs. Wharton, of Westwood Road, Southampton. Lieutenant Wharton was a member of a well-known w n military family, his paternal great – grandfather fought at Waterloo, and all the male members of his mother's family have been or are in one of the Services. One brother is a Lieutenant in the Navy, and another is serving in India.

He was educated at Scaitcliffe, Charterhouse, and the R.M.C., Sandhurst, from which he was gazetted to the 2nd Battalion The Durham Light Infantry (formerly commanded by his uncle, Brigadier-General H. S. FitzGerald, C.B.) on the 8th August, 1914, and was promoted temporary Lieutenant in November, receiving the substantive rank to date from December, 1014. For active service in the Great War Lieutenant Wharton was attached to the 1st Battalion King's Own (Yorkshire Light Infantry), and went with them to Flanders. He was wounded three tittles while showing extraordinary gallantry in going out of trenches to rally his men during a heavy attack at Verlorenhoek, north-east of Ypres, during the second battle of Ypres on the morning of the 8th May, 1915. He was taken to the Convent of Brandhoek, on the Ypres-Poperinghe road, where he died on the following day, and was buried in the meadow adjoining the Convent.

Lieutenant Wharton was keen on all forms of sport; he was a good rider, and on occasions represented Charterhouse in the cricket and football field. The Regimental accounts all speak of his popularity and his cheerfulness under trying conditions, and say that he met his death doing a very gallant action. His Adjutant adds: “He was a splendid soldier, loved by the men and mourned by them all."

WHITEROD

Alfred George Wallace

His is one of the names added later to the Chapel panels, after their installation. He was neither a boy nor a master at Charterhouse. He was probably therefore a member of the ground or domestic staff, records of whom for the period are incomplete. Referring to the C.W.G.C. register 1914 - 1918, he can be identified beyond reasonable doubt.

Company Quartermaster Serjeant. Born in Steyning, Sussex in the first quarter of 1883. Husband of Alice Whiterod of 2 Quarry Road, Hurtmore, Godalming, Surrey. The 1891 census shows him as a ‘pauper inmate’ in Steyning workhouse, along with his [?] father. He does not appear in the 1901 census, hence perhaps he had taken the ‘Queen’s shilling’ and served in South Africa, later became a reservist and was recalled to the colours in 1914. He served with the Royal Engineers, 5th Port Construction Company, Inland Water Transport. He died on 12th November 1918, aged 35. His grave is in St. Sever Cemetery Extension, Rouen, Ref. S. III. Y. 20.

Extract from the Stock Exchange Memorial Book:

CAPTAIN OSWALD ERIC WREFORD BROWN, Northumberland Fusiliers, was born in 1877 and educated at Charterhouse, representing his school at both cricket and football. Before becoming a member of the Stock Exchange in 1902 he had spent four years in Canada.

Soon after the outbreak of war he joined an Officers Training Corps and was given his commission in the Northumberland Fusiliers in November 1914.

He went to France with his Regiment in the following July, and soon after was promoted to Captain. He was mortally wounded at Fricourt on 5 July 1916, and died three days later.

His Colonel wrote: "None gave his life with greater gallantry or showed greater contempt for danger. No one was more solicitous for the welfare of his men who loved him so well."

And another Colonel under whom he served: “Nobody could possibly be more unselfish or so unsparing of himself. He treated his company like his children. All our men, who spent two years nearly with him, will be the better for it, for he gave them such a splendid example of always playing the game."

One of his sergeants wrote: “A stouter heart I never knew. He was a Britisher absolutely, and never flinched. He was everyone's favourite."

One of his men wrote: "The captain had a heart like a lion."

And another: "He was always a soldier and a gentleman, and the greatness of his loss to us all cannot be put into words."

A Charterhouse master: " To some of us older ones here . . this is the worst knock we have had, and that 's saying a good deal. We shall never forget the keenest and cheeriest of Carthusians."
