Bury Free Press 23rd June 1917:-..BECK ROW SOLDIER LOSES AN ARM:-
Sympathy is felt for Mr. and Mrs J.G. Greenacre, Kenny Hill Road, Beck Row, who have been officially notified that their son, Prvt J.G.Greenacre, has been wounded in France and has lost his right arm. He is now in hospital at Chichester, and reported progressing. The parents previously had a son killed in France
Problem...Cannot match this earlier son's death to any memorials names. Explanation could be typos.... Francis Greenacre died 1916, he had brother John Edward -sons of Thomas and Nellie. Given the ease with which 'T' and 'G' or 'E' and 'G' can be wrongly transcribed, this does appear to be the answer...UNLESS you have a better suggestion.
CULFORD ESTATE WW2
CULFORD SCHOOL WW1
Edward C MUNNS
One of three brothers, but in this case unable to find his military details
FORNHAM St MARTIN WW1
He is on the Kenny Hill memorial, attributed to the 2nd Suffolks, otherwise no trace of him. George and Thomas Gipp from the area were captured at Le Cateau and appear to have survived the war.
Nothing known Bombardier Robert John NEAL is identified, but there is also this J.NEAL(E)
Nothing known unless by chance it was a typo for "C" in the Bury Free Press in 1920, in which case the nearest seems to be Conney Rutterford, but have failed to find Mildenhall connection.
Was on the memorial amongst the Gunners, otherwise another blank, possibly Charles Taylor.
There is also an A.Webb who is identified, but A.W. has not been found.
again there are two on the memorial, one being L/Cpl Robert Wells, so it seems we search for Corporal R WELLS
He is named on West Row memorial as Driver Wilfred King but that is all that is known
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 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.
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
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. see here

Possibly John Everett, born in Withersfield (Risbridge Q3-1890 4A:649), baptised on 31st August 1890 in St Mary the Virgin, Withersfield, son of Walter and Catherine Julia EVERETT. No military details known
James Smith aged 22 is named on family headstone, it records "Who fell in the Great War on 24th June 1917 Aged 22" He cannot be found in the CWGC records, "Soldiers Died" or any of the usual records. His service records are not known and his death registration has not yet been found
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
