      Hi Michelle. There's a list of names for each panel on this page. The one you want is for Panel 1 of those who served and returned home. I'll check to see if we have any other photos. Kind regards, Andy.
  2. On the last small panel next to the last .Wolmersizer , he is listed as G. Wolmersizer but its is a C . Clifford Wolmersizer was my Grandfather . I am currently researching the Wolmersizer family tree . If you come across anything that may be of interest could you please e.mail me . Many thanks

      Hi Ann. You are quite correct, it is a C and I have changed this now. Thank you! I have also emailed you about Clifford, and Walter Womersizer who may also be related to you. Kind regards, Andy.
    • Have just seen an old post (from 2021) about the Wolmersizer family. I remember Mrs Frances Wolmersizer very well from my childhood as she lived just a few doors away. I believe she was the widow of Walter and that this was home throughout their married life. Catherine
      • Hi Walter was my grandads (Clifford) younger brother ,
