Since 2014 the School has been uploading a photograph and biography on the centenary of the death of each Abingdonian who lost his life in the Great War. The biographies have been compiled from the Abingdon School Admission Register, the school magazine – The Abingdonian – the records of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and from letters and documents sent to the School by the families of the dead. Addresses are as stated in the Admission Register. Where there is no photograph of the casualty an image of the poppy from the Services Window in the School Chapel has been used instead.
