Norman Fisher (1890-1918)

An ongoing project to commemorate and research the lives of those who appear on war memorials and rolls of honour in the local area, who served in the military, or whose deaths were linked to conflict.


Born circa February 1890, he worked as a commercial traveller and was residing at Spring Grove, Thongsbridge, at the outbreak of the First World War.

He was invalided out of the forces in July 1916, "being no longer physically fit for war service". According to his medical record, he suffered from muscular rheumatism (i.e. trench foot) and spent 21 weeks recovering at Middlesex Hospital.

He died of pneumonia towards the end of 1918.
