Geddington Roll of Honour

Remembering the fallen of World War I (1914-18)

There are six additional WW1 soldiers with connections to Geddington, not listed on the war memorial. The War Office notified the families in Geddington – for example, AF Catt previously worked at Boughton House.  At the time of producing this list, we did not know where these men were honoured. However, since then Mr John Bennett has come forward with details about each soldier. We are very grateful to Mr Bennett for supplying this information and, by doing so, enhancing our 1914/1918 Roll of Honour.
