There are total of thirteen names recorded on the Village War Memorial who lost there lives during the First World War. Not all the individuals listed on the War Memorial were born or grew up in the Village as is certainly the case with John Canning Dove but no doubt it would have been a relative living in the Village who would have had their name put forward to be added.
The historical information for each individual has been taken from a number of sources which is credited at the bottom of each individuals page.

Update: March 2015.
While looking through documents in the storng box in St George’s Church the following documents were found.
Falfield Men in Service - This lists men from Falfield who joined the war it also in most cases it records their Regt No, their Battaliom, Regiment or ship that they were serving at the time the document was produced along with any decorations. The document is not dated so it is unclear at what stage during the war the information was put together.
Names of Falfield Men on Active Service - This is a small document which again records men by name and their regiment. On page three is also records men that offered themselves for enlistment but were rejected on medical grounds. Some the these men must have subsequently joined up as they are recorded within the “Falfield Men in Service” document. Page four has a roll of honour which list only two men, John Banks Jenkinson (killed in action September 14th 1914) and Ernest Robert Long (killed in Action January 30th 1915) Based on this information this document was written at some point after January 30th 1915.
Falfield Roll of Honour - This document contains a total of twenty three names however there is some confusion here as the war memorial only records thirteen names. As with the other two documents it is not dated
