13*** & 14*** = Sept 1914

15*** = Sept/Oct 1914

16*** = Sept-Nov 1914

17*** = Dec 1914/Jan 1915

18*** = Feb/March 1915

19*** = March/April 1915

20*** = May/June 1915

21*** = (?? probably July-Sept)

22*** = Oct/Nov/Dec 1915

Ernest North from St Michael's, Longstanton is commemorated on a pair of stunning stain glass windows (below). He has no known grave and is therefore also commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial.
