It can be very difficult to identify in official records people who who have minimum information included on the war memorial.
The war memorial at Castle Bromwich is one of several that lists only initials and surnames, not ranks, regiments or years of death. We are struggling to identify the following people who are mentioned on the memorial:
- B. T. Harris (is this Benjamin James Thomas Harris, died on Royal Edward 13/8/1915?)
- C. Stone
- A. W. Watton
If you have any further information on these men, please let us know. We’re especially keen to know their full names and when they died, so that we can be sure that we remember them on the centenary of their deaths.
