Hello Memorialhunter, this is a fantastic piece of work, I have just one query in relation to the listing for St Peter's WW1 memorial, Wolverhampton, Staffs.

The memorial lists a Reginald G Browning and this has been identified as Reginald Gordon Snell Browning of the 6th Welch who was killed at the Battle of Loos on 2 October 1915 and is commemorated at Dud Corner. I have done some research on this soldier and don't think it is him on your memorial. To date, I have not traced any contact for him with Wolverhampton.

I think the soldier commemorated is Private Reginald George Browning, 41027, 2nd Bn Cameron Highlanders (formerly S/S/23287 S Staff Regiment) who was killed on 17 August 1917 and is on Tyne Cot. He was born in Gloucestershire in July-September 1888, the son of Frederick and Matilda Browning. On the 1891 census the family was living in South Hamlet, Gloucester. On the 1901 census they were living at 73 Bright Street, Wolverhampton. A later address for them was 7 Sherwood Street, Worcester.

I hope this is of help.

Hi Moriaty and SteveM

Moriaty.

Many thanks for the Browning correction. How I came to take the person named was by doing a search for R G Browning and that was the only one that showed. Should have search for R, but as you know that could be sometimes a non starter. All uploads have now been corrected. I will have to see if he is on any of my Gloucestershire Memorials. South Hamlet covers many towns and villages. Once again many thanks.

SteveM

Many thanks for the offer of Swanwick Memorial, feel free to upload

Swanwick Derbyshire memorial






World War One

C J Bacon

There is only one C J Bacon on the death lists but he is listed as from London. I am confident that the initials are incorrect and should be G and not C J.

There is George Bacon who is listed as a 'native of Swanwick' –

George Bacon

They were beaten off but one officer and one other rank was killed.

I have only found one death on CWGC for an E Beighton.

29120 Private Ernest Beighton, 7th Bn The Buffs (East Kent Regiment) died 27 August 1918, buried Quarry Cemetery,Montauban.

Birthplace and abode listed as Alfreton, Derbys. Killed in action.

F Hanbury

From the 1901 census records of Arthur (above),this is no doubt Frank Hanbury his younger brother. I cannot find a death for him in WW1. This could be an error when they did the memorial The only F Hanbury to die was in the South Wales Borderers and from Wales.

Hi MH,

I've just started researching my family and was 'gob-smacked' to see both of my Gt Uncles listed below - Charles and John Houghton.
We never knew where John was, and now we do - much to the relief for my Dad(nearly 80) who had 'wondered' for years where he lay. I have to say I felt very emotional seeing both of their names. Thank you beyond words! Janie
