The War Memorials Register (compiled by the Imperial War Museum) records a memorial tablet commemorating the personnel of Claybury Hospital who served and died during the First World War.
The memorial was described as a ‘handwritten Roll of Honour, sewn to a backing and mounted in a glazed wooden frame.’ Of the 111 names recorded, 11 died in action. The names of those who died were said to have been ‘indicated by a cross after the surname.’
Ten names of the fallen which are included the transcript have been extracted from the Claybury Hospital entry in the London County Council Record of Service Book. The memorial record held by the Imperial War museum however refers to eleven names. This discrepancy remains unresolved.
The Roll of Honour was recorded as being displayed in the Boardroom at Claybury Hospital until 1998/1999, after which it was transferred to the Royal British Legion Loughton Branch by Mr Peter Cogger, a former Counsellor at the hospital.
The current whereabouts of the Roll of Honour is unknown.
