The memorial to the Great War dead in St. Mary’s church in Cholsey, a village near Wallingford in Oxfordshire, lists 41 names. Who were these people and how did they come to die? Six of the 41 names remain to be identified, but for the remainder there is information about when they were born, who their families were, their occupations, their military career and how they came to die. A further 26 war dead with connections to the parish are also described.
