Clearwell War Memorial (General)

Hi Jeff,

I've concluded this is our man.

The Army Roll of Honour lists the same K W Roberts (same service number) as living in Gloucestershire and a birth place of Monmouthshire (Clearwell coming under Monmouth at the time).

The grave record has him as being born 1919 (OK, he could have lied about his age) and there's only one birth record of a Kenneth W Roberts in 1919 who's mother's maiden name was Roberts also and that was registered in Monmouth.

Given that we can't seem to find a Kenneth Worgan anywhere and the connection between Kenneth W Roberts and the Worgan name, I think it would be reasonable to assume the Kenneth Worgan on the memorial is actually the Kenneth Roberts identified here. It would be good to get proof that Mabel was his mother though but that should be possible if someone gets a copy of the birth certificate.
