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'.

Killed in action in Gallipoli, July 22. I915.
De Ruvigny's Roll of Honour:
He left for the Dardanelles in June 1915 and was killed in action in the front trenches at Gallipoli.
Col. Palmer, who was killed two days later and buried beside him wrote : “He was one of my best officers. He was always thinking of the welfare of his men and was much loved by his comrades, who could not fail to appreciate his unselfish devotion to their interests.”
Major Gordon, who succeeded Col. Palmer in command of the regt., wrote: “ Mr. Grundy was a splendid officer, energetic, capable, cheerful and brave.” His Influence with his men is illustrated by the following extract from a letter: “He does everything for us and we would do anything for him.” A brother officer concludes his letter : “Let it be some consolation that his end was worthy of his life and that he left behind him an example that we should like to follow.”
The Master of Haileybury y College wrote of him: “He was a keen scholar; he was a fine athlete; but what we loved him for was the boyi laugh, the unfailing cheeriness, the constant goodness of his heart. He had that real charm of personality which is given to but few men ; but it is perhaps the best of God’s good gifts. I cannot put my feelings better than in the words one wrote to me : ‘ All the sunshine seems to have gone out with Grundy's death’ “

The death in action is announced of Lieutenant Eric S. M. harding of the King's (Liverpool) Regiment. He was 25 years of age, and the second son of the late Mr. William Harding and of Mrs. Harding, 21, Templemore-road, Oxton. Lieutenant Harding was educated at Malvern College, and when the war broke out was preparing for the final examination to become a chartered accountant. He joined the ranks as a private in 1914, and obtained a commission in the following year, subsequently putting in some good work at Oswestry Camp as a bomb instructor. He had been on the Western front for some time, and on 5th inst., while on patrol duty, a large body of the enemy tried to surround the patrol. Although shot in the leg, Lieut. Harding kept his men well in hand, but he was hit again, and died while being carried back to the trenches. Lieutenant Harding was well-known in athletic circles. He was secretary of the Birkenhead Cricket Club, and was regarded as one of their best bowlers. He was also a promising member of the Ramblers' Football Club.

Dover Express - Friday 10 September 1915:
MILITARY AVIATOR KILLED AT DOVER.
The first military fatal flying accident at Dover occurred early Tuesday morning, when we regret to report that Lieut. Geoffrey Brian Hobbs, of the Royal Flying Corps, aged 19 years, met his death owing to his machine falling to the ground at Martin Mill from a great height.
His age was 19 years. He had flown for a total of from 45 to 50 hours, and had had experience of many sorts of machines. At about a quarter to six on Tuesday morning the deceased ascended in a Martinside biplane for a flight. This machine was new him, but it was in good order and had been flown the evening before by two different pilots. His time for flying would be about half an hour. At the end of that time a telephone message arrived from the waterworks at Martin saying that the machine had fallen to the ground heavily. Witness ordered the break-down tender and a hospital orderly to go at once. Witness went with the tender, and in a field to the east of the waterworks he found the machine which had been used by the deceased smashed on the ground, with the engine in the ground and the back doubled up as if it had come down head first. The deceased was pinned beneath the machine. The machine was lifted, and the deceased was cut clear. He was dead. The deceased was removed on a stretcher and taken on the tender to the Duke of York's Hospital.
Raymond Champion said that he was the engineer in charge of the Martin Waterworks. A few minutes to six o'clock the previous morning he was in the yard, and he was watching a flying machine. It was flying very high —at least 3,000 feet — and was going straight along, when it suddenly shot round two or three times, and then turned over several times and fell to the ground. Witness heard the machine strike the ground, and he sent the message to the last witness, and then went to the place where the machine had fallen.
Another officer of the Royal Flying Corps said that he gave the deceased instructions to fly on Tuesday morning and what he was to do. The machine was in good order, and had only been in use four and a half hours. It was sent out the night before for the purpose of seeing if it was all right, and it was reported by the instructor that all was right.
Lieut. Hugh Roker Evans, R.A.M.C., stationed at the Duke of York's School, said that the body was brought to the Hospital a little before seven o'clock on Tuesday morning. He examined the body, and found that death had quite recently taken place. There was a very extensive fracture of the vault of the skull, exposing the brain. The left leg was broken — both bones. Death was caused by the fracture of the skull. The fall would be quite consistent with the injuries.

Great War, Lieutenant 2nd/5th Bn. West Yorkshire Regiment (Prince of Wales's Own) 1914 (overseas).
The announcement of Lieutenant Hutchinson's death has been received with very great regret in Ripon, where he was very highly esteemed by all who knew him, and his sad death has cut short an exceedingly promising career. Lieutenant Hutchinson was educated at Kent House School, Eastbourne, and at Malvern College, where he remained until he passed his preliminary examination for the law. He served his articles with his father until the last six months, when he went to the firm of Messrs Crossman, Pritchard and Co., of London, where he finished his articles. He passed his final examination and was admitted as a solicitor on the 13th October 1913. He practised in Ripon until the end of September 1914, when he joined the West Yorkshires, his commission being dated September 30th, 1914. He completed a thorough training in England with his regiment, and was appointed machine gun officer. He was a good officer, a smart soldier, and greatly esteemed by all ranks. He first went on active service at the beginning of January this year, returning home for ten days' leave in July last. He returned again to the Front on the 1st August. Prior to the war Lieutenant Hutchinson was deeply interested in the Church Lads' Brigade, and held the rank of lieutenant in the Ripon Cathedral branch.
Lieutenant Allan T Hodgson, in a letter to the bereaved parents, says : "Dear Mr Hutchinson, It is with great sorrow that I have to write to tell you of the death of your son in action on the morning of the 22nd November whilst gallantly leading his men to repel an enemy counter-attack near Bourlon Wood. He led his men splendidly throughout the great attack of the 20th and 22nd November. He has proved himself a gallant young officer, and I am proud to have had him under my command. Both his fellow officers and men join with me in most sincere sympathy for you and your family in your bereavement.
There is a marble memorial tablet to him at Ripon Cathedral.

He was employed with John Russell & Co., Ltd.. as Assistant Engineer, during which time he showed exceptional ability, both technically and in the handling of men: volunteered on the outbreak of war: was gazetted 2nd Lieut. 5th South Staffordshire Regt. 26 Aug. 1914, and promoted Lieut. May, 1915; went to France In March. l9l5 and was killed in action during an attack on the Hohenzollern Redoubt 13 Oct. following.
His Colonel wrote: “He was one of the most promising officers in the battalion, and his name would shortly have been sent forward for promotion to Captain. If there was any responsible work which required careful attention, I could always depend upon his doing it thoroughly, and I had the greatest confidence in him. His quiet modest demeanour was an additional claim on the regard which we all had for him, and I can assure you that all his surviving comrades feel his death as a keen personal
loss. Of all the subalterna I lost on 13 Oct. your son was the one I could
spare least. Universally popular, full of promise, and with a quiet reserve of strength, he will long live in our memorles.”
