Putney, St Mary

One Putney ringer is listed in the Central Council roll of honour. Two more have been found listed as Putney ringers in contemporary reports in The Ringing World: one of these has not yet been identified.

  • George William Waylen Honeyball † Missing in Action, presumed Killed, 16 August 1917 — 3rd and 9th (nominally) Battalions, East Surrey Regiment; 7th Battalion, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers: Middlesex Association. [Previously written up in some detail here.]
  • Cecil Jack Matthews — 4th and ?th Battalions, East Surrey Regiment: Royal Society of Cumberland Youths. [Usually linked with St Martin-in-the-Fields where he followed his father as tower captain. Joined up underage, stating he was 19, when he was only 16. Had overseas service, so must have served in another battalion than the 4th (Extra Special Reserve).]
  • L Richardson.

Although primarily a Middlesex Association ringer associated with All Saints, Fulham, Sedley James Collins (died 25 January 1919) is also known to have rung at Putney from time-to-time.
