In Memory Of The Mighty Men Of Mymms

When the headmaster of Welham Green Boys' School, Benjamin Mallett, heard that many of his former pupils had died during the 1914-1918 Great War, he honoured them with the title the Mighty Men of Mymms. 100 years later their stories are told.

Welcome to Mighty Men Of Mymms, a site created to remember those men of the parish of North Mymms in Hertfordshire who died during The Great War 1914-1918, also known as the first world war or WWI.

Please read my introduction to the project to understand why I decided to research and write about this topic.

I am Mike Allen, and I have tried to tell the stories behind the names of the 50 local men who died. Each name on the left links to a page about each man. The pages can be downloaded and printed.

I am also one of the team of four who researched, created, and continue to update the North Mymms History Project, and I am responsible for the Images of North Mymms project.

Below are photographs of the North Mymms War Memorial listing many, but not all, of the names mentioned on this site.

On the left is a list of all those remembered on this site. On the right you will find their military details, including regiment, battalion, rank, and the medals bestowed on them.

If you want to visit the memorial it is off Tollgate Road, close to St Mary's Church, North Mymms, grid reference: TL 22331 04685.
