Tonbridge School Look Up Please

Recommended Posts

Good morning all.

Would it be possible for someone to look up William Ernest Avery for me please in the Tonbridge School and The Great War 1914-1919 book?

Also, does anyone know if the school has a war memorial and if they do - is he on it?

Regards

Alan W

I cannot find William Ernest Avery in any of the Tonbridge School registers or in Tonbridge School and the Great War 914-1919. Dick Flory

Hello Alan

I would think it very likely that the school has some form of memorial and probably an archive/archivist. Might be worth visiting their website.

Good luck

Good morning Dick,

Sorry to bother you but could I ask for a look up for James Whaley Fryer Northumberland Fusiliers, please in the Giggleswick School Register and the Carlisle Grammar School ROH if you have them?

Many thanks

I know that Tonbridge School has the names of the WW1 kia at the entrance to the Chapel. However you should be aware that the original chapel burnt down a few years ago but I believe the stone showing all the kia has been suitably renovated as a new Chapel was rebuilt at some great cost. If you're still looking for Avery can I suggest you contact the school archivist.
