World War I (A-F)

 

 

 

Since the inception of this website the names recorded on the War Memorial in church, and that outside our school, have been listed on these pages.

With the upcoming centenary of the outbreak of World War One I thought it appropriate to do a little more research into those from our community who gave their lives for their country.

Using the 1911 census it has been possible to paint a more detailed picture of these men – their families, occupations, where they lived and, in some cases, how they died.

Details for some however, remain elusive and, whilst it is to be hoped that all the facts are correct, the webmaster would be pleased to hear of any errors or omissions.

The names of those who fell in the Great War are spread over three pages.  Those who died in World War II are listed seperately

HMS Queen Mary was the last battlecruiser built by the Royal Navy before World War I.  On 31 May 1916 Queen Mary put to sea with the rest of the Battlecruiser Fleet to intercept a sortie by the High Seas Fleet into the North Sea.  Fire from the German Ship Derfflinger hit her twice before 16:26. One shell hit forward and detonated one or both of the forward magazines, which broke the ship in two near the foremast  A further explosion, possibly from shells breaking loose, shook the aft end of the ship as it began to roll over and sink.  1,266 crewmen were lost; eighteen survivors were picked up.  Queen Mary, along with the other Jutland wrecks, has been declared a protected place under the Protection of Military Remains Act 1986 to discourage further damage to the resting place of 1,266 officers and men

At least one 305 mm (12-inch) shell from the third salvo struck her midships 'Q' turret.  The shell penetrated the front of 'Q' turret, blew off the roof and detonated the midships magazines, which blew the ship in half. The explosion possibly ignited 'A' and 'X' magazine.  Of her complement, 1026 officers and men were killed, including Rear-Admiral Hood. There were only six survivors picked up.

Ship:- Royal Navy H.M.S. "Vanguard."
Postal Address:- Son of Herbert Favil Wiles Bradshaw(Joiner) and Ivy Maud Bradshaw, of 34, Haydon's Rd., Wimbledon, London. Born at Fulham, London.
Died Scapa Flow due to internal explosion on ship 09/07/1917 aged 17
Additional Notes:- Born 1901. One of seven children.
   The eighth HMS Vanguard of the British Royal Navy was a St. Vincent-class battleship, an enhancement of the "dreadnought" design built by Vickers at Barrow-in-Furness. She was designed and built during the Anglo-German naval race and spent her life in the British Home Fleet. On the afternoon of 9 July 1917, the ship's crew had been exercising, practising the routine for abandoning ship. She anchored in the northern part of Scapa Flow at about 18.30. There is no record of anyone detecting anything amiss until the moment of an explosion at 23:20. A great deal of debris thrown out by the explosion landed on nearby ships; a section of plating measuring five feet by six feet landed on board Bellerophon. It was matched with a sister ship, and was found to be from the central dynamo room, which reinforced the evidence suggesting that the explosion took place in the central part of the ship. There were several theories. The inquiry found that some of the cordite on board, which had been temporarily offloaded in December 1916 and catalogued at that time, was past its stated safe life. The possibility of spontaneous detonation was raised, but could not be proved. It was also noted that a number of ship's boilers were still in use, and some watertight doors which should have been closed in war-time, were open as the ship was in port. It was suggested that this might have contributed to a dangerously high temperature in the magazines. The final conclusion of the board was that a fire started in a 4-inch magazine, perhaps when a raised temperature caused spontaneous ignition of cordite, spreading to one or the other main magazines which then exploded.

Although there is a Collins living in Dryden Road in 1911, son of George Collins (Plasterer) and born in 1901 he would only have been 17 in 1917/18, but could have served. However this is unlikely.  There is also a Collins R.S. living in Colliers Wood aged 34 in 1911 and he is more likely to be the soldier remembered on our memorial.
