On this page are the names of those people from Saint James's who died in both the First and Second World War. 41 people died in the First World War from Saint James's and, then daughter church, Saint Barnabas, Clarksfield. 12 people from Saint James's died in the Second World War. There is a war memorial in the church, built in 1920, to honour the dead from the First World War. It is of course now taken for granted that this memorial also honours those who died in the Second World War, although their names are recorded elsewhere in the church, on a plaque near the High Altar.
