Hidden away in the unused pages of one of St. Edmund's oldest parish registers is a list of all the former pupils of Kingsbridge Council School who served in the First World War. Heading the list are the 43 names of those who died; following are the names of a further 335 former pupils of this school who served in that war.


The person who created the list remains anonymous - it could have been the Vicar or a Churchwarden and/or the headmaster of the school. As was the custom of the day, boys were addressed by their surnames so only their initials were given. An effort has been made to track down the correct forenames using a range of resources but in some cases, to date this has not been possible. The original list was not quite accurate in its alphabetical ordering so adjustments have been made to correct this.

Details of the men who died can be found on the Kingsbridge 1914 - 1918 War Memorial page.
