Year 2014 began raising four years of national awareness behind the sacrifice made by so many through the First World War. The Huthwaite-Online War Memorial Project has attempted to fully identify all names listed on the Huthwaite Cemetery Cenotaph with the aim of providing greater future remembrance. To further honour centenary of their death, each one in turn will be named here on the front page, with links provided to their individual pages of remembrance based on updated research and family memorabilia.
Lance Corporal 15346 - Grenadier Guards
Kings Company 1st Battalion
Killed in Action Flanders 29th October 1914 : Aged 22
Ypres Menin Gate Memorial - Panel 9 and 11.
The history behind a Huthwaite CWS hosiery factory is at long last becoming presented. It has discovered some amazing facts such as once employing above 1,500, plus a superb architects sketch of the original building. Would love to hear from anyone with memories or photos of working there, or in later takeovers.
