World War 1

Following the outbreak of war, on 4 August 1914, a considerable number of former King Edward’s pupils and staff joined up to fight for King and country. While we have the names of some 94 (including two ex-staff) recorded as having died during or as result of the conflict, no disrespect is intended towards any others, whose names are not recorded. Those names that we have, are recorded on the original Wormald-Filgate memorial (below) and also, along with those lost in the second war, in the In Memoriam book in the school Chapel.

The memorial was presented by Mrs Wormald, a School Governor, and the bronze panels were donated by Colonel Edward Macartney Filgate, who dedicated the memorial in 1921. For more information and pictures of the memorial in situ, please follow this link.

The school archivist has worked hard to put together information on each individual, which may be accessed by clicking on that person’s name, below. Out of respect for their families, we agreed not to publish these records until the centenary year of their death, except where we had family permission.  Now that we have reached 2018, the details of all those who died are available to view.

Also included are four names who, while on the Roll of Honour, appear to have died long after the war, and not as a direct result. If anyone reading these accounts has either a family connection, or information they would like to share, we would be most grateful to hear from them.
