Wesley Memorial Church war memorial stories

The war memorial plaque records both local men and many students who worshipped at Wesley Memorial Church during their studies. Some were only in Oxford for a short time before war broke out, and soon enlisted.

The men's stories have been compiled from a variety of family history and military sources. In particular, Chris Baker’s site, 'The Long, Long Trail' has provided valuable details of the men's experience of battle: https://www.longlongtrail.co.uk/. In some cases we have drawn on the work of other researchers, particularly at schools, and these are acknowledged on individual pages.
