The following is a list with biographies of the 459 people who attended Malvern College and died due to the First World War. Altogether 2,833 are known to have served.
There was not a month from August 1914 to November 1918 that an Old Malvernian did not become a casualty, with 6 killed on the first day of the Battle of Loos on the 25th September 1915 and 13 killed on the first day of the Battle of the Somme on the 1st July 1916.
The vast majority of casualties occurred in France and Belgium with 31 names recorded on the Menin Gate at Ypres, and 23 at Thiepval. There were also 23 casualties in Turkey due to the Gallipoli Campaign, and 16 in Iraq, including 2 near Kut.
They were in a wide range of regiments including 26 in the Royal Field Artillery, 13 in the Royal Engineers, 12 in the Worcestershire Regt, 11 in the Canadian Inf, 11 in the East Kent Regt (The Buffs), and 5 in the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Air Force.
Most were officers with 133 Captains, 125 2nd Lieutenants, 114 Lieutenants, 26 Majors, and 15 Lieutenant Colonels.
22 received the MC, 5 the DSO and 1 the DCM, as well as 3 knighthoods (the CB, CMG, and MVO).
The information below is based primarily on the memorial books held at Malvern College which Ian Quickfall, and now Paul Godsland, the Malvernian Society archivists, have arranged to be digitised with the official memorial web site still in development.
Further information was also obtained from 'The Malvern College Register 1865-1924' edited by H.G.C Salmon, 'A History of Malvern College 1865 to 1965' by Ralph Blumenau, and 'Malvern College: A 150th Anniversary Portrait' by Roy Allen.
Information was also obtained from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website, the Unit War Diaries and Service Records held at the National Archives in Kew, and various online commemorative websites whose links have been provided.
The main battles have tried to be identified in which Old Malvernians died in. Many though were killed in the general attrition of Trench Warfare which is so vividly described in the book 'Nothing of Importance' by Bernard Adams.
Below is a map showing the locations of the 240 cemeteries where Old Malvernians are buried or commemorated in. The markers are coloured yellow for one casualty, orange for between 2 and 9, and red for 10 or more. The name of the cemetery and number of casualties can be seen by hovering over the marker, and the list of names seen by clicking on the marker. Their full biographies and pictures can be seen by clicking on 'Further Info'.
The records can be filtered and/or sorted by name, house, age, regiment, battle, date, place etc by clicking on the appropriate drop down box and then the 'Search' button below the map. The original memorial book entry can be seen by clicking on the person's picture.

He was killed in action on March 22nd at 11pm.
A fellow officer wrote – ‘I am the only officer left in his Company and was with him where he was mortally wounded. All day previously he had shown great cheerfulness and disregard of danger, and was forever walking up and down urging and cheering on the men. Even when he was wounded his last words to me were, ‘Look after the Company, and keep down off the top of the trench.’ These words were just characteristic of him – a way of thinking of others before himself. A very good officer, liked immensely by his fellow officers, and loved by all his fellow men’.

He took a scholarship from Malvern to Worcester College, Oxford, where he gained honours in law. He volunteered in 1914, from the office of Messrs. Brown and Elmhirst, solicitors, York where he was articled. His commanding officer writes, "He was a universal favourite both with the officers and men. I looked upon him as one of the best young officers I have had in the battalion. He always took such an interest in his work, was so keen, and nothing was ever too much trouble for him to do, and to do thoroughly. His death is a sad loss, not only to his friends, but to the Army. He was last seen rallying his men close up to the German position."

He was killed in action while leading his company at High Wood. He was awarded the Military Cross "For keeping his men together a whole week in the front line under terrific shell fire. Although wounded the first day, he refused to allow himself to he sent back, and was buried three times. He acted with great gallantry and set his men a splendid example.” The Brigadier-General of the 1st Division wrote " He was certainly one of the best cmnpany commanders in the brigade, and had done most excellent work only last month, where his energy and fearlessness were most conspicuously shown. He is a real loss to us,” and his Commanding Officer: “I thought you would like to know how much I valued him, and how highly I thought of his abilities as a soldier.” A brother officer also wrote: " It may be a great consolatiOn to you to know that he was beloved by the officers and men of my battalion. I have known him for the past twelve years. I had the very highest opinion of him.” and another: “I look back on all my friends who have gone, and above all stands one — a little higher, a little nobler, a little finer than all the rest — your husband."<

Son of William Ross Hedges and E. Hedges, of 117, Anderton Park Rd., Moseley, Birmingham.
On 6th April 1915, the Birmingham Gazette reported that he had been shot through both legs by a rifle bullet while attempting to rescue one of his
wounded men in front of the trenches as a result of fierce fighting at Zillebeke near Ypres.
During his time in hospital he wrote to the editor of the Sporting Buff saying:
' The left leg is healing up well and the muscles and nerves, which were mostly severed, are joined up again, as I can move my right foot several inches already. It is rather a slow business, though. I had also frost bite in my right foot, through having to lie in a ‘Jack Johnson’ hole (shell crater) for nearly six hours before we could be got away. No stretcher party could have lived there by daylight, of course, and the hole was about one third full of water, in which my feet were submerged. It was really a most uncomfortable way of spending a Sunday afternoon.’
He was severely wounded on the 18th August, and was taken to the 20th Casualty Clearing Station based at Warlincourt where he died three days later.

1st Bn. Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry
Born at Leicester. Son of E. Hingston, of "St. Oswald's", Selwyn Rd., Eastbourne.
He was born at Leicester on the 6th June, 1877, and was educated at Llandaff Cathedral School and Malvern College. He joined the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry from the Militia in October, 1899, and took part in the South African War, in which he was employed with the Mounted Infantry, and was present at operations in the Orange Free State from February to May, 1900, including actions at Poplar Grove, Driefontein, Vet, and Zand River; in the Transvaal in May and June, again, from July to November, 1900; and a third time from November, 1900, to October, 1901, including actions near Johannesburg, at Pretoria, Diamond Hill, and Belfast. He was mentioned in Despatches ("London Gazette," 10th September, 1901); and received the Queen's medal with six clasps. He was promoted Lieutenant in May, 1901, and Captain in February 1909; and in December, 1911, was appointed Adjutant of the 3rd Battalion, Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry. He held this appointment until March, 1915, when he rejoined the 1st Battalion, which formed part of the Vth Division.
Captain Hingston was well-known in Switzerland as a remarkably fine skier. In the winter of 1913-14 he won the British Ski-ing Association Cup at Wengen. He was also adept at ice-hockey, winning many trophies, and a keen lawn tennis player and golfer.
Writing after his death, a General Officer said: "I wanted, as Brigadier General Commanding the brigade, to tell you how very deeply and sincerely I sympathise with you in the heavy blow that has fallen upon you. Your husband belonged to a great regiment, which has given consistently splendid service throughout the campaign, and, if I may say so, he was one of the finest officers of a fine regiment. I had often spoken to your husband on the occasion of my frequent visits to the trenches, and had always been much struck by his earnestness and thoroughness and by the keen interest which he took in all matters relating to his company and his men. To them I know his loss is a severe one, as it is indeed to all of us."
Captain Hingston married, in November 1911, Essy, youngest daughter of the late Colonel William Charles Plant, Indian Army, and left no family.

On 16th Sept 1914 he was badly wounded in the back at the Battle of Aisne, during the afternoon, by a shell splinter, and sent home. "During this day [Aisne, 16 Sep 1914] we had still another severe loss amongst the officers, as poor "Mother" Hunt (Captain Ward Hunt) was badly wounded in the back during the afternoon by a shell splinter. One of the very best, I had known him intimately for several years with the 2nd Battalion when I was attached to it in 1910, and at the Depot when he was doing duty there. One of the world's most cheery souls, with a heart of gold, "Mother" was popular wherever he went." (2Lt EJ Needham's account).
On 25 Feb 1915 he returned to France, and on 9th May led an attack against German trenches at the Battle of Aubers Ridge, and although badly wounded he carried on and was killed. "The poor old boy went out again to the 58th in 1915 and was killed at Aubers Ridge on the fatal 9th May. A very great little gentleman and a really good friend." (2Lt EJ Needham's account). In The Battle of Aubers Ridge, 9th May 1915, the 2/Northants were in the Northern Pincer movement, and had 426 casualties that day, of which 12 were officers. More than 11,000 British casualties were sustained on 9 May 1915, the vast majority within yards of their own front-line trench. Mile for mile, Division for Division, this was one of the highest rates of loss during the entire war. There is no memorial to the attack at Aubers Ridge.
