The Roll of Honour
in Winkleigh Church


      The Roll of Honour resides in Winkleigh Church and records those who participated in the First World War.  However, the Roll of Honour does not describe the part played by these people.  It was the intention of Rev. Nesbitt that the full details of those who fell should be made available for all to see and remember, and this has been done for the Memorial Cross pages of this site.  It is felt that it would be appropriate to also include these other participants, who are listed below.

      The original list was compiled by Colonel Alexander, who did an admirable job at the time.  However, as with the Memorial Cross, recent research has shown that some names seem to have been omitted from those who returned from the war.  These are A. E. Born (6th Battalion. Devonshire Regt), A. Brealey (Royal Field Artillery), F. Norman (6th Battalion. Devonshire Regt), G. Ottley (H.M.S. Hanibal) and C H Stephens MM (Royal Army Medical Corps) who have been included in the list on these pages.  Richard Mitchell, who died in 1919 and is listed in the Roll of Honour, has also been added at the end of the Roll of Honour where those who died were listed.

Click on any name and you will see the information that has been found.  More than half of those listed have as much information as has been found to date, including some with complete service records, and the rest show the current progress of research.
