To commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, the Friends have painstakingly researched all 53 servicemen either buried or remembered in the Wembdon Road Cemetery.
Short biographies can be found below by just clicking on a name, each entry also displays an image of the headstone. Should you have other details, corrections or anecdotes of these heroes, especially a photograph of the serviceman or medals he was awarded we would be delighted to record them here for posterity.

'They went with songs to the battle, they were young, straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted; They fell with their faces to the foe. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them'
Robert Laurence Binyon 1869-1943
