I am doing research for my local web site on serving soldiers from both wars.
On the Roll of Honour site there is an Ernest Woodcraft listed but with no information. I beleive him to be born c1897 in Eaton Bray Beds the son of John and Elizabeth Woodcraft and brother of Harry who was killed in action in 1917.
The only other record I can find is from the absent voters list of 1918.
Listed as:

Woodcraft , Ernest of Bower Lane Eaton Bray
276146 80 BGW co CME Works RE.

Does anyone know what the initials stand for please.
Thank you
