Memorial Board Names – Panel 2

Eason to Laidler

This page contains details of the men listed on the second panel of  the 1914-18 Memorial Board at St Mary’s Church Tower, Hornsey.

Introduction

If you haven’t read it already, you can read the story of how the memorial board panels were rescued from a skip. There is also a high resolution image of the memorial board where you can view the original names.

The details on this page are taken from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) database. A question mark preceding a name means that we are not  absolutely certain this is the correct record. For  a small number of men, we have not been able to find any record at all.

We plan to gradually add individual memorial pages on this website for the men about whom we can find more information. If you know anything about any of the men, we would love to hear from you. You can either email the archive team,  or leave a comment at the bottom of this page.

If you are looking for  details of other names, you will  currently find Panel 1: Addison to Dunsford; Panel 3: Lawen to Shaw; Panel 4: Sherlock to Wright.
