Chipping Campden 1914-18, Appeal for information

Share this article

The text for the book is virtually finished and at the present moment there are 460 people with entries in the book. Throughout the six weeks school holiday I will be inserting the photographs into the text and laying out all of the pages. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people of Campden and the relatives of the people in the book for being so helpful over the last few years. I hope that the book will be a fitting tribute to the people from Campden who served during the Great War.

I am making one last plea for help on the following men: Edward Brooks. Charles Burnett. Reginald Cairns. Arthur William Cherry. John Codrington. William Haylock. Arthur Jones. Percy Lane. H.B. Lewis. Jack Midgley. Cyril Sheadman. Julian Simpson. Frederick Smith (I have two but I need three different Frederick Smith’s.) William Smith (I have one but I need two different William Smith’s.) John Smith. Frank Thorne. E.E. West. Thomas Wheeler.

I have searched church records, census returns and the Evesham Journal. Any help, no matter how small would really be appreciated.
