Twenty-nine men from the parish of East Budleigh are recorded on the village's memorial plaque as having fallen in the Great War.
They saw service on land and at sea, among them three brothers born in the parish who died in 1915, 1916 and 1917 respectively, all aged between19 and 25.
Two more brothers, both Second Lieutenants in the army, died within three months of each other in 1914. Two other brothers also both died in the war, one serving as a chaplain to the Grenadier Guards, the other as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Worcester Regiment.
The fallen of East Budleigh are remembered on a wooden plaque in All Saints Church, and on a memorial in the heart of the village.
