Men missing from the Old Steine Memorial

There follows a list of men who appear to have obvious connections with Brighton, but whose names are not included on the War Memorial in the Old Steine. All have next of kin in the town and in many cases have their names included on Church Memorials. Most of these entries are taken from The Commonwealth War Graves computerised records which cover all casualties with Brighton addresses, The men are listed in alphabetical order.

Preparing this part of the record has proved to be very difficult, and I began to have great sympathy with the post war committee, whose task it was to decide who was to be included and who left out. In many cases the parents lived in the town, but the wife in another area altogether and vice versa. Some regular soldiers, although born and enlisted in Brighton, no longer resided there, their home being The Regiment. Lodgers and workmen in Brighton at the time, can usually be found on their home town Memorials, but sadly in some cases have been omitted from both. Generally speaking, I have not included those whose names appear on other Memorials.

The Commonwealth War Graves provide addresses which were applicable post war but are not necessarily the address at which the servicemen lived at the time of death.

This list is by no means complete, as it includes only those men identified by The Commonwealth War Graves Commission with addresses in the town. Wives who lost their husbands during the conflict nearly always remarried and it appears that the late husband was often omitted from the Memorial, especially as the wife may have left the area or even emigrated to the Dominions.

The details of those who died after the war from injuries or disease sustained during active service are often incomplete, even Christian names missing from official records. Taking all these facts into consideration, it is still incomprehensible to me why some of these Brighton men failed to have their names recorded on their local Memorial. Having said that, the men of the Great War of 1914-19 are at least largely remembered, which is more than can be said for the forgotten and unrecorded casualties of 1939-45.
