In Remembrance

In Remembrance On April 29th 1922 three young children - the eldest not more than seven years old - moved through a huge crowd which had gathered in Upper Norwood. Each child placed three daffodils - the stems covered with brown tissue paper - in memory of their 'Dear Daddy'.

The occasion was the unveiling of Upper Norwood's war memorial. The South London Press report of May 5th 1922 does not name the children or who their 'Dear Daddy' was.

There are no names on the Upper Norwood war memorial. Unbelievably there seems to be no official list of those names which would (should) have been placed on it.

The following list of those Upper Norwood residents and people who worshipped in various local churches and who gave their lives in The Great War is:
a) almost certainly incomplete; and
b) almost certainly inaccurate in some places.

If you are able to provide any further information on any of those named below or can make any additions to the list, please email: crystalpalacefoundation@hotmail.com and the information will be passed onto to list compiler.

There are plaques to the fallen in three of the five parish churches which cover various parts of Upper Norwood - All Saints on the corner of Church Road and Beulah Hill; St Paul Penge which is actually in Hamlet Road SE19 off Anerley Road and St John's in Auckland Road. St Stephen's Dulwich has a memorial cross outside the church with the names of those who fell. The plaque in Christ Church, Gipsy Hill was destroyed along with most of the church in the huge fire of 1982.

There are also plaques in Upper Norwood Methodist Church off Westow Hill and the former St Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Westow Street which is now the Greek Orthodox Church. Two other churches which stood at the end of the First World War no longer exist. According to Dr Ron Cox, who wrote the Croydon Inventory of War Memorials, all the names on the wooden board (which no longer exists) which stood in St Margaret's in Chevening Road also appear on the All Saints memorial. Central Hill Baptist Chapel, which stood on the corner of Gatestone Road and Central Hill was destroyed by enemy action in World War Two. Whether it had a memorial or not I have yet to ascertain.

St Aubyn's which stood on the corner of Church Road and St Aubyn's Road had a memorial window whose unveiling was reported in the Croydon Advertiser of November 15 1919.. Likewise, I have not yet been able to ascertain whether it had any plaque to the fallen of the Great War.

Among the names listed here you will find two men who were awarded the Victoria Cross (one of whom was among two local men awarded the Croix de Guerre).

They came from all walks of life and all classes - fishmonger's assistant, golf caddie, policeman, shoemaker and two Reverends. And a wide age group including one 16 year old and, as I've just been able to finally establish, there is also one woman on this list.
Among the first local men to die was John Stubbins (6.9.1914) whose name is on the memorial in St Paul. Among the last, a former Rockmount pupil Francis Henry Martin (12.10.1918) and Arthur Edward Prosser 23.10.1918) whose name is on both the St Paul and Penge war memorials.

Queen's Road - now Queen Mary Road lost at least 11 sons; Moffat Road, Thornton Heath at least seven; St Hugh's Road, Anerley at least 10 and Woodland Road, Upper Norwood at least six along with one former pupil of Woodland Road school. At least nine of those named here - and probably more - all died on July 1, 1916 the first day of the Battle of the Somme which in one day saw the deaths of 19,240 British and Commonwealth troops.

Among those who died on that day was one person posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross; two former pupils of what was then Rockmount Road school and three men from the parish of St John's. (Just over a month before, HMS Indefatigable and HMS Queen Mary were sunk in the Battle of Jutland. 1,017 men died on HMS Indefatigable; 1,266 on Queen Mary. You will find the names of one man from each ship here as well).

Some of the people listed here may have lived in your road. Just possibly they lived in the house where you now live. Spare a thought for them. Without them (and those who gave their lives in World War Two) I wouldn't have been able to write this article...... and you wouldn't have been able to read it.

The unveiling of the memorial was reported in the Penge and Anerley Press May 28th 1921. Bishop Taylor Smith dedicated the memorial to "the men of this parish and the congregation".

Parish Boundaries (based on a map at Bromley Local Studies Library): Up Fox Hill, along Lansdowne Place then along Church Road into Crystal Palace Parade almost to its end. The boundary then goes into Crystal Palace Park where it appears to follow the old boundary of Penge urban district council down to Thicket Road, along Thicket Road to the railway bridge, turning left into Anerley Park Road and Castledine Road across to the railway line, along the railway line towards where the Bromley and Croydon borough boundaries meet, then back up the other railway line towards Crystal Palace, veering off back towards Fox Hill.

ST.ANDREW'S CHURCH, WESTOW STREET
In what is now the Greek Orthodox Church of St Constantine and St Helen on Westow Street there is a memorial tablet to 12 men who worshipped in the building when it was St Andrew's Presbyterian Church and who died during the Great War (or First World War). Their grave, and/or the memorial on which their name appears, is given at the end.

The tablet is a solid bronze tablet on a marble background. The sources for the information above are: Croydon Advertiser of Saturday May 15th 1920 which contains a report of the tablet's unveiling; a brochure of the unveiling of the plaque on Friday May 7th 1920 by Major-General The Very Rev J M Simms, principal chaplain with the British Army in the field 1914-1920; Croydon and the Great War (together with the Croydon roll of honour) ed. by Alderman H Keatley Moore and W C Berwick Sayers; and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website.

On March 14 2009 in a story in the Daily Mail headlined: 'Unknown no longer. Thousands of WW1 dead could at last be identified'. Alexandra Williams reported that British historian Peter Barton had unearthed an archive, virtually untouched since 1918, in the basement of the Red Cross HQ in Geneva. The archive contains details of the death, burial and capture of more than 20 million soldiers from 30 countries involved in the First World War. (The full report can be found on the internet. Just type in 'Unknown no longer').
