On this page you’ll find the names of the WWI soldiers commemorated on Datchet’s Village Green. A small group of Datchet Village Society members is researching the life of each of these men. As we publish our research on each soldier, we will turn his name into a blue link which you can click on to find out more. Please return to this page regularly over the coming months to follow the progress of our research.

There is also a Datchet War Roll, a list of all the men who signed up in WWI, including those who lost their lives and those who returned. As we research the different families in the village, we are noticing that there are men missing from this list. We hope to be able to create a more comprehensive war roll and perhaps to add missing names to the memorial.

You can read more about all Datchet’s war memorials on the Datchet History website, written by Janet Kennish.
