Jerome

Rank: Lieutenant Colonel

Lifetime: ?- 1917

Lieutenant Colonel Jerome of the Royal Engineers, who, according to a report in The Surrey Comet dated 14 April 1917, had been retired when war broke out returned to service on the outbreak of war in 1914 but died in 1917. According to the report of his funeral, Lieutenant Colonel Jerome, of St Olaves, 18 Glamorgan Road, Hampton Wick, had been working at the War Office under General Rock where he had been mentioned in despatches for his valuable services.

Colonel Jerome had only just moved into the newly built house in 1914 at the outbreak of the war but his family remained residents of the house in Glamorgan Road until 1956.

The first phase of this Project is to gather information about the men commemorated on the Hampton Wick War Memorial who fought in the Great War, also known as World War I, WWI or the First World War.
