Men from Quorn who died in WW1, 1914 to 1919 - Details

The PDF document attached to this item provides the details as listed below, for the 78 young men from Quorn who died in WW1. 76 of these men appear on Quorn's war memorial, and a further two are included as their deaths appeared in Quorn Parish Magazines during the war.

During WW1 there were about 410 technically eligible men living in Quorn, between the conscription ages of 18 to 41, although of these a significant number would not be fit and others would be exempt due to their occupations. About 330 men from Quorn went to war, this meant that if you went to fight from Quorn, there was a 24% chance that you would not return. More than half of those who died in Quorn were under 26 years old.

This list is referred to in Sue Templeman's book 'For Your Tomorrow', which is the result of years of research and sheds light on the lives of all 78 men in remarkable detail, including over 200 illustrations.
