Brentham’s Roll of Honour

As we approach 100 years since the end of World War I we remember all those from Brentham who served.

During the period 1914 – 1918 some 210 Brentham men went to war – 17 did not return.

A plaque to the memory of those who gave their lives hangs in the top bar of The Brentham Club.

You can find out more about those who did not return here.

    Thanks for the local bit of trivia Clive, regarding the Poplars at the bottom end (north) of the cricket pitch. I always wondered how/why they were planted there!

    This is real history. Margaret Bukowski should be both recognised and thanked for her research and dedication to this memorable pursuit.

  3. Clive E says:

    Its also worth noting that a stand of poplar trees was planted on the bank of the Brent by the cricket pitch, most of which are still there. Poplars were chosen because they are tall and straight, as soldiers should stand.
