In 2014 Ampthill historian John Hele published a book called Ampthill’s Fallen.
Ampthill’s Fallen is a tribute to the 67 men on the Ampthill Memorials, and to all those who were killed or died as a result of the Great War. John Hele diligently records what is known about each man’s life, service and death. Eight of the men also appear on the Memorial Cross in Ampthill Park because they trained at the Bedfordshire Training Depot (1914-16). The eight soldiers are:
- 23071 Private Harry Burt

- 23251 Acting Sergeant George Money
