Biographies of Bushey and Oxhey Servicemen who died in The Great War

Over one hundred years have passed since the start of The Great War and information about some servicemen who gave their lives for their country is sadly brief. These biographies were compiled by the Bushey First World War Commemoration Project specifically to form part of the social history of Bushey and Oxhey and to act as a starting point for further individual family research. The Project has gone to great lengths to ensure accuracy but inevitably there may be errors and omissions. If you would like to make any corrections or additions please contact info@busheyworldwarone.org.uk

Please note that there is a short delay before each biography appears on the screen.
