In this part of the project we researched those lost by the parish in World War 1. The names we limited to those named on the Highfield Church War Memorial, names which appeared in the Parish Newsletters of the time, names appearing on the Roll of Honour or in the headmasters logs of Highfield School and those that appeared on the Roll of Honour read by Highfield Church on Remembrance Sunday (this was a manual list and seems to have been collected over time to add names of loved ones lost by parishioners who later moved to the area).
Although we may not have included everyone from the area who laid down their life, we believe we have captured all those with a link to the church or school, or those who would have wanted to be specifically remembered by Highfield Church.
The personal history and service information has been gathered from many sources and additions or corrections would be gratefully received.
The full list amounts to109 individualswho gave their lives fighting in World War 1. However, there are an additional 15 names which we have not been able to ascertain if they relate to WW1 or WW2.
