Compiled by the Rev. Herbert Johnson, Vicar of Lustleigh at the time. He said later that there were names missing on the Memorial tablet and that the committee over which he presided had decided to give admission to the list only to those whose home was in Lustleigh and whose deaths took place during the period of the war.
One such was Joseph Wheller about whom he wrote: "He was not a resident of Lustleigh but a lad who, in 1917, came to live with Mr. J. H. Richards (then parish Clerk) to learn from him the trade of Boot Repairer. When old enough, he became a soldier and fell in action. It was felt that his connection with Lustleigh was too slight for his name to be included with those on the Memorial Tablet in the church."
