Local historians Barry Crutchley and Ken Wayman have been researching the lives of the men whose names are on the Elmore Green School Great War Memorial in the primary school at Bloxwich.
All of the men came from Bloxwich, Blakenall Heath and Leamore. They have a great deal of information about the majority of the men but the details of three men remain elusive.
There are three men named H. Hill who came from the area but there are no conclusive facts that tie one of them to Elmore Green School
There are five men named J. Smith one of whom went to Elmore Green School.
There are four men named J. Yates, none of whom can be linked to the school.
If anyone has a relative who died in the Great War perhaps they could look carefully to see whether they might be one of the men above.
Anyone with information on the above men is asked to contact Barry Crutchley on 01922 691515 or Ken Wayman on 01922 683668.
