Wivenhoe's Roll of Honour - First World War 1914 - 1918

This list of people from Wivenhoe who served in WW1 was compiled by Ian Valentine in 2016

This Roll of Honour contains more than 300 names of those people from Wivenhoe who served our country in the first World War.roll-of-honour-title-page

it was Colonel T. Gibbons who unveiled the War Memorial in St Mary’s Churchyard on 21st June 1921 to commemorate those people from Wivenhoe who lost their lives in the War. He is reported as saying that ‘the Cross would be a permanent memorial of the patriotism and public spirit which had sent over 400 men to the Colours.’  This became the motivation for Ian Valentine to compile this list of names which has involved lots of painstaking research in local newspapers, the Essex Records Office, National Archives and the Essex Regimental Museum.

Where a name in the list below has been highlighted, clicking on that name takes you to additional information that we have about that person.  We have researched all the information we have been able to find information about the 46 people whose names are inscribed on Wivenhoe’s War Memorial together with details of the other 24 people who died and who were not named on the War Memorial.

We welcome additional information about the people named in this list and we will add names where we have been unable to find them in our research.
