Tharston War Fallen

The names below are those Tharston men who loost their lives in The Great War and World War II.

A good friend to the Tharston History Society, Jane Butland, informed us that she was going to visit the War Graves in France, I presume mainly because she had a family member, Frederick Christopher LLOYD, in the list above, who has a Memorial at the Beacon Cemetery, Sailly-Laurette - photo below of Jane at the Beacon Cemetery entrance. She offered to photograph all the graves of the Tharston fallen, an offer I could not refuse.

It was a delight to have Jane visit the War Graves of the Tharston fallen and upon her return she forwarded us photos of all except one of the names we had given her - one was killed in Gallipolli! Thirteen soldiers buried in France, twelve different memorials, visited them all! She must have had such a full itinerary that it had surely been the entirity of her French visit.

If photos in any soldier’s information are from Jane’s visit they are labelled ‘(JB)’.
