E Goddard


E Goddard is not a recognised casualty of the Great War and is not included in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's roll of honour.

 

There are two common reasons for this:

 

  1. Men/women who do not meet the CWGC critieria - for instance civilians who died while working with non-recognised organisations (eg. Nurse Lorna Ferris who died while nursing soldiers in Serbia) or men who died of their wounds after the closure date for CWGC commemoration (August 1921).

  2. Men who were discharged as unfit before succumbing to their wounds/illness within the CWGC qualification date. Many such men were overlooked when the then Imperial War Graves Commission drew up their list of men and women who died as a result of the war. Cases such as these may be retrospectively added to the CWGC roll of honour providing adequate evidence can be found to convince them that the man qualifies for inclusion.

To date seven such cases have been found among the names on West Berkshire memorials, six in Newbury and one in Leckhampstead.
