They whom this tablet commemorates, at the call of King and country left all that was
dear to them to endure hardships and face dangers. And then passed out of the
sight of men by the path of duty and self-sacrifice giving up their lives
that others might life in freedom.
Let those who come after see to 
it that their names be not forgotten
(War Memorial in St Mary’s Church, Dunmow)

Their Name Liveth For Evermore

    Albert Crow d. 1 November 1914. He was my Great-great Uncle. Killed near Ypres and his name appears on the Menin Gate (panel 5); served with the 16th (Queen’s) Lancers, attached to Life Guards. I took my mother (his great niece) to see his name and watch the Last Post Ceremony last month (May 2015) and to place a poppy cross under his name on the wall. I personally knew his brother, Frank Crow, also from Dunmow, who survived the war and went on to live into his 80’s. I took some pictures of the name, the cross etc. if they are of interest to anyone, please let me know.
