Langford’s First World War Casualties

Following the publication of Burrington Parish in World War I, Jacky Kerly has collected together information about each of the eight men commemorated on the war memorial that stands outside St Mary’s Church in Langford.  Notes on each man are presented in the following articles.

Photographs of the memorial and of some of the men can be seen in the Gallery.

The dedication on the memorial reads:


In honoured memory of the men of Langford who gave their lives for God, King and Country in the Great War 1914 – 1918.
