68 posts in this topic

I have recently acquired this on CD-Rom. It has a brief bio on each casualty who worked for the Printers McCorquodales. It also contains a photo for the majority of those listed. If any one wants info from it, I'll be pleased to oblige

Will - It looks like the McCorquodales in Wolverton will be knocked down to make way for new houses, I wonder if they have a memorial inside the building?

I saw that in the local rag. Such a shame really, although I have heard a rumour plans are a foot to try & get the building listed. Whether this will be successful or not I really don't know. I get the feeling the MK planning committee will allow houses to be built there if they get even half the chance (of course solely in the name of low cost housing for the masses.....you only have to be on £40k+ a year to buy this lovely self contained studio flat/broom cupboard & lets not forget the need for re-generation of Wolverton <_< )

As for any memorial I don't know. If there is one & the place does get knocked down I sincerely hope it's salvaged & placed somewhere appropriate.

Will,

could you write to McCorquodales re the proposed redevelopment citing your interest in the Great War and ask if there is a memorial and what will happen to it?

If there is you might at least be able to get a photo.

If the news is bad i.e. no plans to save we can start a resite the memorial campaign!

Will - I live a few yards away from McCorquodales, I'll see if I can find out if they have a memorial, and if so what they intend to do with it.

Lee and Will,

Have you considered getting Friends of War Memorials involved? They make sure Memorials are restored/replaced in suitable places. More info if you want to email me.

Aye

On a serious note I think thats an excellent idea if it transpires there is a memorial in the building that's being knocked down.

Although, assuming there is a memorial in place, the MK Museum might be interested in it. Or, juding by the amount of work being planned for the rejuvination of Wolverton, there might be other parties interested in obtaining the memorial.

I will get round to McCorquodales in a day or two and I'll see what is what, and I'll post my findings.......Red Squirrel out :ph34r:

Going back to the Roll of Honour - could you look to see if there is a L/Cpl J Mash, 8 KRRC listed.

Also any other 8 KRRC would be of interest.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Hi,

Can you search by date? If so could you tell me if you have anything on casualties from 27th May 1918.
