William G Fritter

William Fritter was born in Holdfast Lane, Grayswood in 1895 to James and Fanny Fritter. The family moved around and when William enlisted aged just 20 the family were living in Westcott.

Initially enlisting in February 1915 in the 6th Bn Kings Royal Rifle Corps (12320), he had served for just 15 days on the western front with 9th Battalion when he was killed in action on 30 July 1915.  He was just 21 and was killed in Ypres, his death is recorded on the Menin Gate. 

Information taken from Westcott Local History Group

William enlisted at Guildford on 9th February 1915 and initially joined the 6th Bn. The King’s Royal Rifle Corps which formed at Winchester on 21st August 1914. [...]  After training at Aldershot and Petworth, the Division landed at Boulogne on 20th May 1915 and by July had taken up positions at Hooge, about 4 km east of Ypres in Belgium. William embarked from Folkestone on 15th July 1915 having been transferred to the 9th Battalion.

On 19th July at Hooge a large mine was exploded under the German lines and 4th Bn. The Middlesex Regiment occupied the resulting crater. British artillery quelled German attempts to recover the crater, but retaliation came on 30th July. At 3.15 am with dramatic suddenness, a British position known as ‘The Stables’ blew up and jets of flame shot across from the German trenches. This was the first time that liquid fire flamethrowers were used by the Germans against the British. The 14th (Light) Division had just taken over that part of the line and a deluge of fire of all kinds fell on the 41st Brigade and the support positions behind them. The Germans achieved complete surprise. After intensive hand to hand fighting nearly all the positions held by the Brigade were lost.

Despite the German success the 42nd Brigade on the left had not been attacked and they were ordered with the remnants of the 41st Brigade to mount a counterattack. A feeble 45 minute bombardment preceded this and the 41st Brigade attack failed. However the 9th Battalion, King’s Royal Rifle fared better and recovered some of the lost lines. The 43rd Brigade relieved the badly-hit 41st during the late afternoon and evening. During the night, another flamethrower attack was repulsed, but further British efforts came to nothing against heavy German shellfire. A surprise attack by the 6th Division on 9th August eventually regained all the ground that had been lost.

William Fritter was killed in action in the afternoon of 30th July, while almost certainly taking part in his Battalion’s successful action to recover some of the lines which had been lost during the first flamethrower attack. He had served just 15 days on the Western Front before he was killed. His body was never found and his name is recorded on panel 51 and 53 of the Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres which commemorates 54,406 members of the Commonwealth forces who lost their lives in the Ypres salient and who have no known grave. ‘Hooge 1915’ is an accredited battle honour of the King’s Royal Rifle Corps.

Robert Charles Blockey

Robert Charles Blockey lived at New Farm Cottage, Grayswood. In 1942 he married Irene Mary.

Robert, born 1909, was educated at Dulwich College and worked as an assistant curator at the Haslemere Educational Museum.

A great ornithologist, his Royal Air Force notebook filled with observations of birds he had seen on his travels to Egypt, Palestine, Greece, Cyrenaica, Sinai, Iraq, South Africa and England is held by the Bodleian Library.

He enlisted on the outbreak of war, joining Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve 156 Sqn (81376). He was mentioned in dispatches in 1941.

His final mission was over Germany.  Berlin was recognised as the target and night-fighters were sent to a radio beacon rendezvous point between Hanover and Bremen but missed the bomber stream and were consequently redirected to Berlin. Losses were unusually high with 10 Lancasters being Lost from 156 Sqn. All in all, an ineffective raid, with bombs being scattered throughout Berlin. 82 houses were destroyed and 36 people killed but there was no industrial damage of note. The mission which took off from Warboys Herts on 2nd January 1944 resulted in the loss of 27 Lancasters. There were only 4 survivors from the 36 aircrew. Robert’s aircraft crashed over Riesdorf, Germany. He was reported missing, later presumed killed in action aged 34yrs.

Hugh Walter Hayward

Hugh Walter Hayward was the son of Walter and Constance Margaret Hayward. Walter worked as the Chief Accountant with the Asiatic Petroleum Company, a job which took him to Japan where he married Constance and where Hugh was born in Kobe in 1922.

In 1939, following the death of Constance, the family moved from Haslemere to Hawks Stoop, Grayswood, Surrey. When War broke out, Walter served as an ARP Warden while his son Hugh enlisted with the RAFVR (152993) and served as an air bomber with 148 Sqn.

Hugh's final mission was bombing the Mittelland Canal at Gravenhorst, Germany. Although the canal was successfully breached, Hugh’s Avro Lancaster III exploded having been hit by flak or bombs which in turn caused the other aircraft nearby to also explode. All seven crew were killed. He died on 21 November 1944, aged just 22, and is buried in Reichswald Forest War Cemetery, Kleve.  His epitaph includes TO WHOM BE GLORY FOR EVER AND EVER (Galatians 1:5)

Peter William Lowe

Pilot Officer Lowe served as a Pilot Officer (101018) with 605 Squadron RAFVR.

Peter William LOWE, born on 15 September 1922, was the son of Squadron Leader William H Lowe and his wife Joanetta Marjorie (née Watson), of Grayswood, near Haslemere.

The following is taken from the Eastbourne College Archives
"Peter went to Eastbourne College from Aldro School in September 1936, showing all-round promise. He soon became one of a very happy group of three or four Blackwater boys, all of them intensely human, very friendly, and with a perfect understanding of each other. They went up the house more or less together and in normal times would have been together as leaders of it. The war, however, prevented this, and at the time of leaving school in July 1940 Peter Lowe was just coming to a position of responsibility; he was Hon Sec and had been for two seasons in the cricket XI, had gained 2nd boxing colours, and was a corporal in the OTC.

Latterly Lowe had become more and more interested in flying, and his career after he left was one of great promise. Passing through the early stages of his RAFVR pre-operational training with 457 Squadron on the Isle of Man with great credit, he took his place in the forefront of the war not much more than a year after leaving school. Ordered abroad, he joined 605 (County of Warwick) Squadron in Malta. During take-off his aircraft swung violently and knocked off a ‘Flying in Progress’ flag and his tail wheel. He regained control and the flag was claimed as a squadron souvenir with the legend ‘605 Scorched Earth Gang’ emblazoned on it. He took part in battles for the defence of Malta. Flying from Hal Far airfield, Malta, as a Pilot Officer in a Hurricane to cover the return of a Maryland recce plane, he was shot down into the sea on 15 February 1942 by a Messerschmit 109, one of a large number of enemy fighters. He is commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial, Panel 70, and on the RAF Memorial at All Saints Church, Grayswood, Surrey. He was 19. Peter Lowe was very popular on his station, and a brother officer has said how well he reacted to the sticky time they had to go through. He met his death with characteristic courage."

Those who served

Text from talk on Remembrance Sunday 2018 by Jane White

One hundred years ago this Country was in the middle of a great war, the great war.  This beautiful village probably looked similar to how we see it today, there was a church, the club and the school.  Most of the buildings we see were here although some were shops or had businesses running from them and of course, the village green was the same but with a few more trees.

In 2017, I researched the names on the war memorials that are in this little area of Surrey in the South of England and was amazed and very proud of what I uncovered.  I decided that for the centenary of the end of the first world war I would try and find out more about these men.  I displayed photographs of men related to some of us here, everyone whether they were lucky enough to survive or who lost their life should be honoured and remembered,  This country would not be what it is today without the struggles they lived through. Some of these men have been more easier to find out about than others, so please forgive me as I won’t be talking about every name today.

You can see the information I found on this page

It is still humbling to think that in a small village like Grayswood the number of men who lost their lives fighting for our country.  We take news and information as instantaneous now, it must have been awful not hearing for sometimes months that your son or husband had died. I feel privileged to know more about the men who laid down their lives and those that came back more than a lifetime ago.  I wear my poppy with pride and humility. This is not a list of names, these are lives.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. This officer acted as liaison officer between regimental headquarters and the front line for two days and nights, continually carrying messages across the open under heavy shell and machine-gun fire.

It is easy to forget to remember
Those so easily forgotten
That they are not just a list on a village plinth
Or buried names in newspaper print
Let us not forget they were people like us
Fathers and sons and daughters and mums
Cousins and lovers and friends
And those who live on to carry the burden
Of grief and pain without end
They too need remembering
And holding in place
For their unhealed wounds
And their sacrifice
For them no victory is found in their tears
Just a sense of defeat
And wasted years
We remember them.

There is much to remember
Perhaps more to forget
And yet
While it’s part of our history
As page after page
Is quick to record
Do we only remember the dates and events
Before the people that paid for it all.
Let us not forget that what we remember
Is not the glory of men at their best
But rather the cost
Of a world at a loss
As to how to live with itself in peace.

But now to return to those that are gone
Whose lives are an unfinished sentence
About to say something to someone they loved
But stopped in their tracks
As they paused to draw breath
Interrupted, cut short
And rudely silenced
By an untimely guest
Who called himself Death.
We remember them.

Let us lastly remember
If death is the end
In the end
The cost is too great
A man once said
Before choosing his end
Greater love has no one than this
Than to pay the price and lay down their life
For their friends as a sacrifice
So today let us say
And remember always
Greater love has no friend than this:
Than to always remember
And never forget
That life itself is a gift.
