The following Roll of Honour covers the parish of Guiting Power (at the time of the Great War referred to as Lower Guiting) which in addition to Guiting Power includes Farmcote, Barton and Roel.
The listing was taken from an elaborate wood framed, glass fronted parchment Roll of Honour in St. Faiths Farmcote.
The Roll of Honour in St. Michael and All Angels, Guiting Power contains the same names, with minor discrepancies which are shown.

 “A Force” is expanded to “Aust Force” on Guiting RoH, so A Force probably means Australian forces, therefore C Force is probably Canadian Forces.
 The war memorial shows a F. East as having died in the war, as not listed among the dead on the RoH it is probable that this Fredrick East died of his injuries between the time of the RoH being written and the war memorial being built.
