Some of the of the Deddington Men who served in World War 1 and who were not killed

These names have been taken from the Deddington Deanery Magazine and a printed Roll of Honour which is undated but probably was published in the Spring of 1917. The combination of these two sources provides a comprehensive and probably incomplete record of those that served, a list that is too often not available.

The following Men of Deddington are known to have been wounded and/or discharged. The surviving Records of Soldiers in World War One are very poor having largely been destroyed in a bombing raid in World War Two
