​Servicemen Buried in St Lawrence Stratford-sub-Castle Churchyard

 

 

 

We are privileged to look after the forty-seven World War One Commonwealth War Graves on behalf of the War Graves Commission. These graves are situated on the north side of the Church. In addition to the War Graves, the Church also records the deaths of nine soldiers who had connections with Stratford-sub-Castle and who were killed on active service overseas during World War One.

 

All but two of these soldiers died in France or Belgium, with one dying in Greece and the other in Mesopotamia. The names of all these soldiers are recorded inside the Church on the South Wall adjacent to the Organ Gallery stairs. 

 

There are also two World War Two graves - those of R.E. Ginder RAF and D.D. Rawlins RAF.

 
 
 
 
  Below you will find the main details of those buried here. For full details see the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
