1914-18 The Fallen – Road by Road

St Michael & All Angels Church lies at the heart of Bedford Park in Chiswick, a residential area developed between 1875 and 1886 and acclaimed as the world’s first “garden suburb”. In and around the church there are several memorials with the names of 128 men and women that died in the war and were somehow connected to the church and/or the local area. Little was previously known about who these people were or how they lived, served or died, but over the past four years we have unearthed many details, including addresses they were associated with.
Please scroll down to see the links to our WW1 Project site for more details. See also: The Fallen – Year by Year.

Archivist Dr David Beresford writes: “The Fallen on these lists are associated with families that lived in Bedford Park and/or  Chiswick, but not all lived here. In many cases I have found no evidence that the Fallen themselves actually resided here.  I don’t think those who compiled the local lists at the end of the war did anything to verify the names of those who submitted them. It just emphasises the need by bereaved families to see local recognition of their loss.”

David Beresford wrote to all those living at these addresses in Bedford Park, inviting them to place a bunch of poppies on their door or gate.
