Blackmore: War Memorial Project (6)

The Group has almost completed its research on those who died in the First World War associated with Blackmore. From a list of 45 candidates (one was added very recently: Herbert Game), 31 have been positively identified with a Blackmore connection with 3 warranting further research. There are two candidates who should be regarded as survivors. The remaining 9 are not connected with Blackmore. In addition to the five listed on 11.4.10:

- Frederick and Charles Root both lived at Horsfrith, which is in Highwood parish
- John Crane and Wallace King are associated with High Ongar and are commemorated on that War Memorial.

The intention is to honour them on pages linked to the appropriate parish.

An updated list can be found on
