They are the brothers:

L/cpl 6822 William Henry Warr 2Btn Yorks & Lincs KIA 19:10:1914

Prvt 8629 Charles Warr 1st Btn Devonshires KIA 30:10:1914

I would be really, really grateful!!

Many thanks for the help....though it deepens my problem!! On the CWGC site their mother gives place of residence as Chetnole Dorset . Which is where I live and I was checking because I wondered why they are not on the village war memorial. I know the family were in Lyme Regis in 1901 (from the census) So why would mother state Chetnole? Is it because SHE is by then living there and isn't actually the boys home? Maybe Charles is on the Musbury memorial?
