Woodford Remembers

To commemorate Woodford's fallen heroes of the First World War, a biographical note has been published on the centenary of their date of death with the exception of the final casualty whose record will be published on 11 November 2018.

These notes are not to be considered as biographies, but a snapshot or background note of each of them.  In order to keep each article to a single page, the only a small portion has been included for some of the men.

However, if you have any information you would like to add (especially any photos) to that which is published or would like any further information about a specific serviceman please email clerk@woodfordpc.co.uk. Equally if you are aware of any errors please also make contact 

The Woodford War Memorials (on the village green and at the Parish Church) contain the names of the fallen from both world wars, but not all names appear on each memorial. There are also a number of Woodford men not commemorated on either of these memorials. The notes below detail upon which memorial/s the names of the fallen appear.

Further details regarding the two memorials in Woodford can be found at Woodford Online.
