The Men on the War Memorial

Since the unveiling of the Warmington war memorial on Armistice Day, 1920, it has stood as a reminder of the men from the village who gave their lives in the First World War.  Can we put faces to the names of those twenty-five men?  Currently, I have photos of Edward Corney, Hugh Victor Turnill, William Charles Garfield (pictured), Wilfred Robert Ulyatt, Harry Upex and John William Upex.  That leaves 19 more photos to be discovered.  Can you please help?  If you have photos of these men which you are willing to share, please send a message using the Roll of Honour Contact Form.
