  • The names on this Roll of Honour are very similar to some of the names on a Roll of Honour recently discovered at Brampton Parish Hall. All but three of the names above appear on the Brampton list which also lists men from the area who served and came home.
    See my blog post here:
    I have referred to your post on my blog.
    I am still trying to find out where the Brampton Parish Hall RoH came from. Apparently a previous Parish Clerk found it in his papers a few years ago.
