Alphington War Dead in Two World Wars By Vi Palfrey

A5 Paperback, 16 pages with 4 colour photographs.

A brief history of those with Alphington connections, who died in the two World Wars. Fifty-three names have been researched with short biographies. The names are compiled from the Alphington War Memorial Plaque, Exeter Memories website, burials in Alphington Cemetery and those found in a book of the Devonshire Regiment, 1918.

“It is sometimes difficult to understand why some names have been put on memorials and others have been left off. Some were born in Alphington, some married a girl from the village, while others were parents who had moved into the village.”
