Additional Names

 

While researching this project, the team discovered other casualties of the Great War who are not listed on the local War Memorials. In some cases there is a grave in a Cemetery, a plaque on a church wall, or simply a reference in a newspaper article.

Each added name has been researched to ascertain the facts of their death and their connection to the Dawlish area. If their final resting place is in Dawlish cemetery they have been added to those who are otherwise commemorated on the War Memorials, even though they may not have a familial connection to Dawlish.

At the completion of the project consideration is being given to placing a supplementary WW1 plaque to record the names of sixteen men and one woman on the Dawlish War Memorial. A newspaper advertisement will invite approval or objection, in each instance, before the plaque is unveiled.
