those, from Burpham and Jacobs Well who gave their lives in the 1914-1918 war
‘Burpham Will Remember Them’
In the early 1900s Burpham was in the Parish of Worplesdon and together with Jacob’s Well was essentially one large, scattered, community.
The Burpham War Memorial by Jean Shail
We are greatly indebted to Ron Shail for permission to use material from his late wife’s book which she researched and wrote about 2003 and which was published on her behalf by Burpham Parish Church.
Sadly, at the moment the book is out of print.
We hope, as a result of our further work and the availability of more data (e.g. the 1911 Census) to publish a new and revised edition of the book in late 2014.
