Roll of Honour

At Tyne Cot on our French Trip at the grave of a Yardley Courtier

The Michaelmas Term Head Boy, with his deputies, during the Remembrance Day Ceremony at the entrance to the Garden of Memory Nov 11th 2011

The Yardley Court Cubs at Remembrance Day Ceremony Nov 11th 2011

We remember with much gratitude and respect Yardley Courtiers who have given their lives in the service of their country. In all we lost 44 Old Boys or Masters in World War One and 63 in World War Two.

Each alternate year the boys, as part of their trip to France, find the names and/or graves of Yardley Courtiers on the Menin Gate and at Tyne Cot Cemetery and all three schools take part in our wreath laying ceremony each November 11th at the entrance of the Garden of Memory. There at the entrance the visitor will see two plaques with the names of those who died in the wars in various branches of the armed forces.

Below are those names and, where it is known, the places where those Yardley Courtiers are either buried or mentioned. Where further information is held on an individual by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, a link to that page of the CWGC website has been set up; simply click on the name.

We welcome any further information which will help us to add in any way to this page and hope soon to be able to include any lost in any conflicts other than the World Wars; please contact us through the contacts page on this website.
