I heard a rumour that there was a circus elephant buried in the grounds behind the cenotaph... What do you think?

Dear Betty. Generally it was up to families to send in the names of the men of the district who had been killed for inclusion on the memorial. This means that not everyone is going to be listed.
By the way, you can download Ira Evans's service record here (Archway). Regards, Jamie Mackay

My uncle. I R Evans (Ira Rubel Evans 9/2065) was killed on the 14th July 1916 on the Somme but his name does not appear on the cenotaph. He was born and lived at Longbush and he is buried at Cite Bonjean Cemetery, Armentieres. He was originally a trooper but died as a private. Can anyone explain why has name is not there?
