Brixton Hill

Brixton Hill Roll of Honour. Methodist Archive and Research Centre (reference MA 8030 item 120 )
Trustees for Methodist Church Purposes, 2018

The  Guild Secretary supplied a list of 24 men, with units but no further details. This transcription respects the view that all are equal in death. No other Methodist or local memorial has been located, but the records of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission include Brixton addresses for half the names, and all are recorded as casualties. Thomas H. Broadley illustrates the fact that conscious decisions were taken in the creation of these rolls. His mother appears to have been from Brixton, and presumably attended the chapel, but he was born and always lived in East Grinstead.

J. Sydney Cable is recorded in the Historic Roll as having contributed from this chapel.
