WW1 Hadleigh War Graves at the Armistice Centenary 2018
The War Graves Commission website lists the WW1 graves in the St James-the-Less churchyard on the Churchyard Registration Report Form. On the accompanying information, it gives the approximate location of those graves.
The Allen and Staines family war graves are next to each other, clearly visible from the new north gateway to the churchyard. Charles Wallace’s grave is north of the chancel.
Another grave, for F.J. Clarke, is near to the west boundary, but he alone is is not recorded on the Hadleigh War Memorial or the report form. (Discharged through sickness in 1917, he was buried with full military honours after he died in 1919).
Full information about them and the many other local servicemen we remember at this time can be found on this website on the relevant Roll of Honour page via the Index.
Just a few of the millions who lost their lives as part of that conflict, but we in Hadleigh remember them.
Well done to the Hadleigh Community Group who have worked hard to get us our very own “Tommy” to stand on the green by the Christmas tree by St James.
