Over the past few years, Stanwell staff and students have been researching the names of the men on the Stanwell Roll of Honour in order to learn more about their lives and their service to their country.
The Roll of Honour pays tribute to Arthur and William Monroe, Arthur Tudor Thomas, Beresford Vyvyan, Bertram Spence, Charles Herbert Stanley Wakeford, Francis Reginald Steele Wakeford, Charles Matthews, Charles Wilfred Tucker, Clive SJ Yule, Douglas Pettigrew, Leonard and Arthur Tregaskis, Ernest Rees, Arthur Trevor Jones, Frederick Wall, Garnet Hammond, William Hugh Thomas, George Johnston, Henry L Hall, Humphrey Wynne-Williams, Kenneth Window, William Henry Thomas, Nowell Edwin Cooper, Ralph L James, Reginald P Thomas, Thomas Henry Cox, Thomas Le Breton Roscoe, William Ernst and William Hale.
As the nation marks the centenary of the end of the war, Stanwell are hosting an event Stanwell Remembers to honour the sacrifices made. On Thursday 8th November there will be a pop-up museum displaying the findings of this research and will include tributes from current students and those from our local primary schools. In addition, the Performing Arts students will bring some of the stories of these men to life through drama, music and dance.
The event begins at 6pm until 8pm. Tickets are £3.50 per person and all proceeds are to be donated to the Royal British Legion. Tickets are available from Stanwell School’s reception. This event is open to everyone who wishes to join us.
