Hamilton’s WW1…An Update

In time for ANZAC Day, I have added the Hamilton’s Christ Church Anglican Church Roll of Honour to Hamilton’s WW1. You can find it on the following link – Christ Church Honour Roll  

There are 163 names, 156 men and seven women. Thirty-two of the men did not return from the war. I’ve included their rank, unit from the Nominal Roll and any honours.  You can also read the biographies of thirty-six of the men and women.

Five of those named on the board were children of three consecutive Archdeacons of the Hamilton Anglican church, William Tucker (1894-1898), Reginald Hayman (1898-1906) and Charles Harris (1906-1917). Virgil Tucker and Percy Beaumont (step-son of Charles Harris) did not return from the war.

There are sixty names on the Christ Church board which are not on another of the honour rolls I’ve added in recent months, the Borough of Hamilton WW1 Honour Roll.  That roll has 411 names, 406 men and five women. The stories of 102 of those men and women are now completed.  You can find the names on the following link – Borough Honour Roll.

I have now completed a total of 155 biographies for Hamilton’s WW1, 145 men and ten women.  The most recently completed biographies are listed below. There are four more very close to publishing and I had hoped to have them completed before tomorrow.  You never know, I might get there yet. You can click on the names below to go to a biography.
