  • Private Arthur Gibbons has been identified through two obituaries contained in The Surrey Comet dated 14 & 21 September 1918. Unfortunately, the reports do not agree on the identity of the regiment in which he served. Whilst the earlier one states that he was serving in the “A.S.C., M.T.” , the later one gives his regiment as “Marine Artillery, attached to No 5 Howitzer Gun.” Presumably, the later report corrected the earlier erroneous one or possibly Private Gibbons transferred from the ASC to the Artillery.

  • Goodall

    Private Ernest Frank Goodall's obituary in The Surrey Comet dated 14 September 1918

    Private Ernest Frank Goodall (67993) enlisted at Staines into the 11th Battalion of The Queen’s (Royal West Surrey Regiment). He died, aged just 20, near the end of the war on 22 August 1918.

  • Goodright

    Private Henry Albert Goodright

    Private Henry Albert Goodright (25281) of the 11th Battalion of the Suffolk Regiment died on 24 March 1917 according to the records of the CWGC (although his obituary in The Surrey Comet dated[ ] 1917 gives his date of death as 29 March 1917). He is buried at Faubourg D’Amiens Cemetery, Arras. According to his entry in UK Soldiers who Died in the Great War, he enlisted in Kingston.

  • It would appear that Albert Gurney could be, in fact, Private Alfred Gurney (14104) of the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Fusiliers (City of London) Regiment whose entry in UK Soldiers who Died in the Great War states was born in Hampton Wick and was killed in action on 13 February 1915 in France.

  • Hackman

    Bandsman Harry Horace Hayes of the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Fusiliers died at Gallipoli on 30 November 1915. He has no known grave but is commemorated on the Helles Memorial.

  • It has not been possible to identify with certainty Frank Hayes through the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website. However, the name Hayes is local and, presumably, Harry was related to Harry Horace Hayes.
