Can you help identify casualties from Castle Bromwich?

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.

  1. Thanks to help from Castle Bromwich Youth & Community Partnership, we do now have names and dates of death for these three men: Benjamin James Thomas Harris; Charles Stone; and A. Watton. We’re always grateful for further details so please do get in touch if you have any further information.
