World War 1 and 2 Roll of Honour

The Roll of Honour or Memorial for those servicemen that died during the World Wars is given below.
However it must be noted that there are no general rules as to who should be included on the lists. It is up to each village or town to decide.
In the case of Uplowman the list includes those servicemen that have a close connection with the village. They include those that were resident in the village as they went to war. However, there were some people that were perhaps born in the village and spent most of their lives here but at the time of war had left to get work or get married. They may still have had family connections in Uplowman.
That is why some servicemen are remembered on more than one village memorial, and sadly some who appear on none.
The basis of the Uplowman WW1 list is those that were named in the Stain Glass window in the Church that was installed in 1919 to commemorate the fallen. Some were not included perhaps because they had recently left and had no family in the village.

There is also a plaque in the Church in memory of those that served in WW1.
