2008-09-24Buckhurst HillJean Parle Well done Ian. I have found out things that I would never have known if I hadn't contacted you. Keep up the good work and thank you so much.
2008-09-16Southend on SeaEric Mitchell It is good to have a memorial such as this so we can remember the brave men who gave their lives for this country. Thank you Walthamstow War Memorial Project, for the care and attention that you take in maintaining this website.
2008-07-15WalthamstowSidney Great idea Ian! I was astounded looking through the records and saddened at the same time. You have obviously spent a great deal of time and effort creating this site, I am sure that the men commemorated on it would be proud... I am not so sure that they would be so proud of how this country, that they sacrificed their lives for has degenerated into...I digress Keep up the good work!
2008-11-12WarwickshireMargaret Fantastic site, I hope I can add a few of my own relatives to your memorial and thank you for the time and effort you are expending on the project.
2009-03-09LoughtonLillian Just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you are doing commemorating the brave men who lost their lives in the First World War. It is good to know they will be remembered in the future.
2009-05-08CroydonPamela Stockwell Grateful thanks to Ian for his researches, resulting in my finding out, over 90 years on, the circumstances of my uncle's death in WW1.
2009-09-23Walthamstow bornPatricia Hancock Thank you Ian, within 24 hours of telling you about my Grand Uncle, Private, Walter Herbert Baker, who was missing from your list he is now remembered here. I will sort out pictures for both brothers Thank you
2009-11-09SouthamptonSarah Oatham I don't have any pictures of my great uncles who lived in Walthamstow and who died in France during the First World War. I don't have any personal possessions of theirs. I don't even have a birth certificate for them. But this site is a way of telling the world that they did exist and they were brave, young men who did their duty for their country. A few years ago I went to France to visit Rifleman, Alfred Ernest Oatham's inscription on the Thiepval Memorial, and Private, Herbert Gerald Oatham's grave at Bucqouy, France. I often thought that i carried the memory of them back to England when i came home, but now i realise it was already here, in Walthamstow. Now i just carry it around in my heart every day. Thanks for the great site.
2010-09-20EssexLinda Bailey Thank you so much for creating this site - have just started researching my family tree and it is wonderful to be able to see a memoriam to my uncle who I never got to meet.
2010-11-03EssexChris Berry Excellent site. I visited the grave of Private, George Blackmore Berry (died 28.10.15) in Chatby Cemetery Alexandria, Egypt (following evacuation from Gallipoli), and his house in Queen Elizabeth Road, Walthamstowwhere my father was born. It's a shame their names are not recorded elsewhere in Walthamstow.
2010-11-08Ontario, CanadaJohn Burman I am a grandson of Gunner Alfred John Burman, Royal Field Artillery. Our father Alfred was his only son. We have never forgotten him. You have done a marvellous job here.

2010-12-07High Wycombe.Sarah Orpin nee Winter Thrilled to see a memorial of my great Uncle Lance Corporal, Thomas Walter Dunkley . I have been researching my family and your site is a splendid idea. Curiously my husband's family come from Walthamstow also. I was born and brought up in Wales where my grandmother Winefred May Dunkley moved not long after she married.
2011-12-28ChesterJean Skinner Thank you for the work you are doing, our Grandfather Private, William Walter Smith lost his life in France and it is good to know that his sacrifice has been recognised in Walthamstow. I would like to know more about how he died but thanks to the CWGC information our youngest son and his family were able to pay the family's respects to their Grandfather, Gt Grandfather & Gt Gt Grandfather none of us got to know.
2012-05-19chingford e4Bill Bayliss A very worthwhile project
2012-10-09WalthamstowMichelle Matthews I have only just come across this site. My mother had three first cousins - Gerald Money, Roy Money and Sidney Money - who were killed in action in WW1. They were all from Walthamstow, and Gerald and Roy are already memorialised on the website. I have sent you details of the third brother, Sidney. Thank you for setting this up.
2012-11-25Loughborough, LeicsSusan Wheeler Ernest Oatham and Herbert Oatham were my grandfather's cousins, but he, despite being gassed, somehow survived. Your website is a very important addition to the wealth of information we have on the Great War - these men are rightly remembered in their home town.
