Shepreth: War Memorial Correction

A woman has won her fight to have her Great Uncle's name spelt correctly on a First World War memorial in the South Cambridgeshire village of Shepreth.

Alison Corfield said the mis-spelling of Private George Samuel's name as 'Samuels' on the memorial in Shepreth caused 'great distress' to his parents after the 1914-18 conflict ended. 

He died, aged 20, while serving during the First World War.

She thinks Private Samuel was a soldier in the London Regiment, and that he fought in the Battle of the Somme. 

Parish councillors in Shepreth have decided to have the final 's' removed after a plea from 67 year old Mrs Corfield, who lives in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
