  1. I believe there is some duplication of names between the Elmdon and Solihull (St. Alphege) memorials.

  2. Many thanks for your comment – we are finding that there is some duplication. The record so far seems to be commemoration on four memorials in the borough – we have two people who seem to be commemorated on memorials in Knowle, Dorridge, Hockley Heath and Solihull School and two commemorated on memorials at Knowle, Dorridge, Hockley Heath and Packwood.
