Roll of Honour

According to the Imperial War Museum Register of War Memorials Acton Hill has commemorated those who served or died in the Great War in three different ways: there is a plaque listing 19 casualties, an oak screen listing 20 names, and the screen is situated in a chapel dedicated to the fallen. This Roll of Honour seems to be a transcription of the oak screen.

The names are:

Bedworth, Lawrence

Brine, F Ronald

Copas, Herbert A.

Cox, W Frederick

Fenwick, Norman F.

Fraser, George A.

Grover, George

Hall, J Stanley

Havelock, Ernest W.

Havelock, Harold S.

Kent, Frederick H.

Lye, F. Stanley

Matthews, Sydney P.

Norman, Leslie A.

Over, William S.

Stroud, W. Gladstone

Tabraham, William W.

Trigg, James B.

Williams, A. Richard

Williams, Lloyd A.

The Commonwealth War Grave for Norman Fenwick reveals that he had been a pupil at Kent College, Canterbury (a Methodist school). As he was only 19 when he was killed, he may well have joined up straight from school.
