About this blog

A blog regarding the thousands of entries in the book The County of Warwickshire Roll of Honour 1914-2005 - Volume 1 South Warwickshire by Kenneth Fowler.
First published by Able Publishing.

Here we will list errors that we believe we have found and the details of the Men of WW1 which the researchers at the time could not find. Since publication nearly 20 years ago numerous new records have become available online.

We also found that the book had a tendency to fit the "wrong man into the right hole" using CWGC records when often the man had not been given a CWGC grave but we found his death using local death records.

Page 116 contains the details for the above named and we want to correct a couple of things. 1. He was born in Longborough, Glos not Loughborough, Leics 2. We do not believe, as stated, that he served throughout the Gallipoli Campaign as he is not listed among the Gallipoli Contingent in H A Adderley's The Warwickshire Yeomanry in the Great War, and instead we believe that he stayed with the 1st/1st's Horses and about 1/3 of the men at Chatby. It is possible that he was later sent out wit

William Keyte - Kineton War Memorial

The entry for William on page 119 of the book states that they were unable to identify him. Pages 115-119 deal with the 3 Kineton War Memorials/Plaques. We believe that in fact it is Private 13101 [George] William KEYTE - 4th Battalion Worcestershire Regiment - known as William who was KIA at Gallipoli on 6 May 1915 during the 2nd Battle of Krithia. Evidence: His pension card give his next of kin as Annie Keyte of Church Street, Alcester, Warks The 1901 census shows Will
