Stanley James' story
On the bell the names is written as Private S J Kinch. We think this refers to Private S J Kench.
However there were (at least) two local men with the surname Kinch among the fallen. George Alfred Kinch and Walter Thomas Kinch, brothers from Canning Town, both served in the Royal Navy in the First World War and were killed in action. We think that if this name referred to one of them, but with a mistake in the initals, it would have been on the third bell (G) which is dedicated to naval inscriptions.
