Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust

Local Men Lost in WW1

A group of members, which has taken the title 'Cobham Remembers', is carrying out research into the effects of the Great War on the Cobham area and contributing to the county-wide project 'Surrey in the Great War: A County Remembers'. This work has included research into local men who were killed during the War.

The names of all men born in the area of Cobham, Downside, Hatchford, Stoke d'Abernon and Oxshott, or resident in the area at the time of the War, known to have died on or as a result of active service during the period 1914-1921, are listed below.

The list includes all those commemorated on the memorials in Cobham, Hatchford, Stoke d'Abernon and Oxshott, a total of 146 men. There are 4 more names linked to private memorials in St. Andrew's Church, Cobham, and a further 57 men who were, according to available sources, born or resident in the area, but whose names are not recorded on any local memorial. Several of those who are commemorated on local memorials may not actually have lived in the area, their names having been recorded at the request of relatives living locally.

A separate list can be found here which includes a further 15 names of men who are not commemorated on any local memorial and who are not thought to have lived in the area, but whose relatives - parents or widow - were living in the area after the War.

There are, lastly, another 13 men known to be linked by records to Cobham, in most cases apparently in mistake either for Chobham or Cobham, Kent. Their names are: Albert Cheeseman, Frederick Charles Clark, George Fryer, Henry Grainsford (alias Pusey), Henry Hill, William Frederick Hizzey, Edward Thomas Hole, Ernest Leppard, Thomas Harry Newman, William Joseph Short, James Stevens, William Taylor and Archibald John Wade.
