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.
