First World War casualties from Ludgrove School

The Military
Hilary is researching the musician George Jerrard Wilkinson whose First World War obituary says had been a music teacher at Ludgrave school, (then near Barnet) sometime between 1908 and 1914.  I am unable to confirm this (can you help?) but decided to see what I could find about the pupils (mostly from prominent families) from the school who had died or other wise contributed. 
I was interested to see that one of the teachers at the school, Henry Peter Hansell, became personal tutor to the sons of King Edward VII - especially as more recently both Prince William and Prince Harry went to the school in its "new" location in Berkshire.

The former pupils and teachers who I identified (I am sure there were many more) were: 
Nigel F. E. Anson
Basil H. Barrington-Kennett
Wilfrid Stanley Bird
William Arthur Derrick Eley
Richard Hallwatt
George Ronald Lane
William Archie Arbuthnot Middleton
W. L. O. Parker
George Harry Thornton Ross
Richard Sutton
