Buriton’s WW2 heroes – can you help?

Search for information about men who lost their lives in the Second World War

As part of work to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day in 2020, we are trying to find information about each of the 8 men from the parish who lost their lives:

  • Charles ALDRED
  • Oscar HILL
  • John HISCOCK
  • Frank KEMPSTER
  • Henry John KERCHER
  • William LEDGER
  • James NEW
  • Percy Henry SMITH

We would like to find out where they had been living, what they had been doing before the war and other information about their family life – as well as details about what they had been doing during the war

If you have any information – or if you think that you might know any family relatives – please let us know via 01730 231326 or info@buriton.org.uk
