WAR RECORDS: Croxley Green History Project search for information on residents from WW2

 Published on: 25th March 2022   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Croxley Green History Project (CGHP) are looking to find village residents who served in the Second World War as part of a new history project.

Victory in Europe Day (VE Day) for WW2, is marked each year on May 8 and ahead of the anniversary, CGHP are trying to find details of residents who served in the second world war and lived in Croxley Green.

A spokesperson for CGHP explained: “Unless family members can alert us of anyone they had serving in WW2, we will never find them, as their War Records will not be released to non-family members for at least another 10 years.”

CGHP is seeking to find as much information out as possible about village residents who fought in the war to be added to their website of WW2 Service People, similar to a previous project they put together on the first world war.

Croxley Green History Project said: “We have recently been trying to identify all the names of those who gave their lives and appear on the Croxley Green war memorial. Out of 80 names, we are only missing the details of three and we would dearly like to have the correct details for them. If you can help, the names of the people we are trying to trace are:
  • Alfred G Martin – He married Edna Croney in March 1940 and in 1939, Edna was living at 258 Chester Road, Watford
  • Douglas King – A Douglas R King (b 26th May 1918) lived at 12 Springfield Close and he was an Esparto Boiler at the Paper Mill. Could it have been him? Was his middle name Roi?
  • Peter Blake – Sadly we are not having much luck finding any links for Peter Blake in Croxley Green.”

The group are asking for anyone who may have information to help to get in contact
