When you go into the church and look at the Memorial you can see the village probably thought that this was the best place rather than in the village as it is a fine piece of sculpture and underneath is a smaller one to the dead of the second world war.
When I look at the names of the fallen from the first war I recognise many family names from the village today and back then the village was smaller so the loss must have been devastating.
Lance Corporal Herbert John Abdey is Remembered on Loos Memorial, the panel reference is 93- 95 which I fear means his body was never found.
Cholsey like many other villages paid a high price with it's men, may they never be forgotten.
