Poppy When did they die? Poppy

The worst year for St Margaret’s parish was 1916, the year conscription started. Seventeen men died that year, with three Second Lieutenants killed in action in France on the same day, 3 September 1916:

The first volunteer to die (Arthur Bradshaw) fell on 13 October 1914, while the last man to die (Charles Jones) was still in hospital in France on 27 February 1919. The numbers of identified St Margaret’s men who died each year were as follows:

1914: 3             1915: 7            1916: 17            1917: 8            1918: 9            1919: 1
