In St.James' church Longborough there is a small plain Roll of Honour that lists those from Longborough and Sezincote who died and served in the Great War. In addition to those commemorated on the war memorial (and J. Simmonds), it lists about 85 names that served and returned.
1. On the Roll of Honour "E.Dix" is listed vice "E.Dicks"
2. The RoH contains an extra name "J. Simmonds" as having been killed.
3. As the RoH specifically mentions the adjoining small hamlet of Sezincote it is possible some of the dead on the war memorial might have also come from there.
