World War I

Mr Robert Simmons

In October 2015 we were approach by Evelyn Empson of Framlingham, who discovered that Robert Simmons who is named on the Framlingham War Memorial did work at the College as a waiter prior, prior to enlisting. Sadly she also found that he is buried in an unmarked grave in Framlingham Cemetery. Evelyn has tried hard to persuade CWGC to have his death officially recognised but they have refused so far. He was added to the Chapel memorials on Remembrance Sunday 2015 and a Service of Dedication was held in Framlingham Cemetery on 21 September 2016 to mark the installation of a grave stone on his previous unmarked grave.
