History of St Michael's - The Great War

Within 5 years of the opening of St Michael's, the Great War had begun. During that war, 33 men of the Parish died, either in action or from disease while serving abroad. Most died in France, although there were also fatalities in Mesopotamia from heatstroke, in Rhodesia and in Australia. Most of the men were away including the Vicar, Rev Shelford, who was a Chaplain to the Forces. In his absence the locum was Canon Woodman until September 1917 and thereafter Rev Palmer.
