Men of Lelant parish who served in World War I and survived


This alphabetical list is based on the roll in St Uny’s church, marked ° in the list; St Ives Weekly Summary of 8 July 1915 (recording a roll of honour of thirty one former pupils from the National School  “on active service”), marked * in the list; and from other newspaper reports. There may be others in newspaper reports that I have not seen.


Eight villagers died in the War. These are noted in The lions of Lelant on this website. The National School included Albert Firstbrook, Stuart Gilbart, and Ellery Phillips, all of whom died in the war; the St Uny roll includes those three and the four other Lelant dead, William Thomas Martin, Andreas Neilsen, Albert H Semmens, Charles Gordon Steer, and John Matthew Trewhella. Additionally William Hodge appears on the school list and, assuming he is the man on the Treslothan memorial, was killed in the war.
