The local history group for Hanham are researching all of the names on the Hanham war memorial with a view to publishing a book commerating the end of the war. We are looking for any information ,photos ,anecdotes to put flesh on the bones.
I note that you have a bible for G F Erwood, who is mentioned on this memorial. Could the history group have sight of the bible

Good morning David,
The bible has already been passed on to a family member, but I've got some details for you which I'll send over in a personal message.

good evening Llew.
Thanks for the contact details. We have been able to exchange information so now both parties know more about Erwood.

It is with great interest that I have found this post.
The following entry is one of my Gt Gt Uncles who died during WWI:
9502 Private George Buxton, 1st Battalion Leicestershire Regiment, died of wounds 21.07.1916, buried at Poperinghe New Military Cemetery,born and resident of Finborough, Suffolk
I have visited his grave twice in the past two years along with the graves and memorials to his 3 brothers who died during the conflict.
My Gt Grandfather, his brother Arthur William Buxton, was the only one of the 5 brothers to return from the front.
If there is a chance to see his bible I would be very grateful.

Good morning Sue,
I seem to recall that George's Bible has already been returned to a family member, but if you can bear with me I'll make an inquiry and get back to you?

The Bible was passed to the church in Finborough. They were going to display it at a WW1 exhibition about the men of the village who died. We had traced the descendants of George to Norwich and the village committee were going to return George's bible to them at the end of the exhibition.
