Zulu.Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Hi I am probably asking the impossible but does anyone know if there is a way of finding out where the soldiers who were killed at Isandhlwana were from? I.e.Their home towns.
We are having a celebration day for Henry Martin a local who was at Rorkes Drift. There were a few other locals there as well. So it seems likely that there were more at Isandhlwana. I have a list of names but not where they were from.
Thanks for reading.

andysandersuk,

There is a memorial window, located in the north transept of Wells Cathedral, to the Somerset men who fell in the Zulu War.  (The above information taken from “The Shepton Mallet Journal,” page 5, Friday, November 13, 1903.)

I hope this helps.

There is a family headstone in Haselbury Plucknett to Private Frank Gooding of the 3rd Regiment (Mounted Infantry) who possibly survived Isandlwana but later died in Helpmekaar.

Regards,

Tim

Hi Andysandersuk
Yes you can , there is a publication titled ' The Noble 24th ' by Norman Holme ...it does state where many of them were born or where they enlisted , not all of them , but quite a few . How many names do you have ? . The book can be picked up on ebay for about 30 GBP's if you are lucky .

Excellent advice, thank you. I have ordered the book from eBay, managed to get it a bit cheaper - second hand.
Thank you.

Thank you Wentworth, Chilcompton is 5 mins from me, and Henry Martin, who was at Rorkes Drift.

Andy,

You may already be aware of another Rorke's Drift defender at Paulton, Somerset - link below to some photos of his grave:

http://www.1879zuluwar.com/t672-972-pte-george-edwards-orchard?highlight=Orchard

With regards to Cornelius Marney, it may be worth having a look inside the church as there could be a memorial of some description. Or on a family headstone in the churchyard?

Regards,

Tim

Actually Gooding WAS a survivor of Isandhlwana. I now know this for certain (see latest edition of England's Sons).
