Did Anyone Your Family Know Survive WW1 ?

Maulden Village 2014-memorial

Did Anyone Your Family Know Survive WW1 ?

There is a lot of interest at present about WW1 at present (it started 100 years ago this year, of course.) While we note the victims frequently and properly, we also need to turn our minds to those known to survive WW1 and who went on to influence life around us afterwards.

Maulden History Society are trying to publish a book about life in Maulden during WWI, and are keen to trace those who may have survived WW1.

Maulden History Society have asked if anyone in the village, or wider readership, can help them with a very interesting and important piece of local research.

We are trying to publish a book to commemorate life in Maulden in WWI and have found out quite a bit about the soldiers on the war memorial, but not so much about the survivors.

List of some Maulden men who survived WWI – Do you have info, or photos of them?

This list is a work in progress. You may know of others.

Please send any info to Rosie Coyle or 44 Ampthill Rd or via the Maulden History Society website

Simple List

The names are also available in a simple list of men from Maulden thought to have seen military action in WW1 that can be checked off for family members as below

Roll of Honour

At moments like this, it is also respectful that we also bear in mind those who did not survive WW1 and those who lost relatives and friends in The Great War.  For them, the Maulden Roll of Honour is linked to the war memorial and is online


They gave their lives for us, and our freedom.
