A.W.WEBB
There is also an A.Webb who is identified, but A.W. has not been found.

R.WELLS
again there are two on the memorial, one being L/Cpl Robert Wells, so it seems we search for Corporal R WELLS

MILDENHALL WW2
J.WALKER

nothing known

Wilfred KING

He is named on West Row memorial as Driver Wilfred King but that is all that is known

NEWMARKET WW1
Fred ANDREWS

He is named on the Roll in All Saints Church and a baker, Fred ANDREWS was in Cheveley in 1911, but that is all we know

Thomas EDWARDS
Thomas EDWARDS is commemorated on the Roll of Honour in St Mary's Church, Newmarket, where he is assigned to the Bedfordshire Regiment. One possible, Thomas Walter EDWARDS, Private 43040 who enlisted in Bedfordshire Regiment on 26th October 1914 and was discharged through illness or wounds on 27th January 1917, aged 20 years 3 months, having served overseas. Since there is no record on CWGC of a Bedfordshire Regiment - Thomas EDWARDS dying, this seems likely, but gets us no closer to identifying him as a Newmarket man.

Wilfrid COOZE
Believed to be Oswald Wilfrid G COOZE, born in Newmarket in Q2-1895 [Newmarket 3b:526a], to William and Susannah COOZE (née WINCHESTER) of "Whitehall", Albert Street, Newmarket. No military details found. He is not on the war memorial but is on the roll of honour in All Saints Church and School

NEWMARKET WW2
John GRAY

There is insufficient information to identify this man either as a casualty or a Newmarket person. It is possible he was John M. GRAY, born last quarter of 1919, mother's maiden name given as GRAY. Birth register:-Newmarket 3b:853. Possibly he was related to the Gray family (with a travellers history) of Newmarket, who lost a son in WW1.

Dear reader..Plese contact if you have even the smallest detail that may be applicable. The smallest clue is often enough to open all the right doors
In addition to these few here, there are many more on this website where a bit more information might take them out of the "believed to be" category
