I know this isn’t Armistice day, but with it being the 90th anniversary of the Somme, I thought I’d point people to a website that has lots of detail about the Tideswell men who gave their lives in 2 world wars. The “Roll of Honour” Website has made a fair start at providing a little personal information about the Tideswell lads who never came home.
Tideswell War Memorial
Perhaps you know someone who lost a relative, perhaps you have some old family photographs or a service record that could be shared with the wider public? If so, please free to contact me. I’d love to hear from anyone with interesting Tideswell Service records data.

Charles was dreadfully unlucky to have died on the very last day of the war. Imagine getting through all that, just to check out on the last day?
I’m keen to hear from any Gregorys hailing from the Salford Area of Manchester for more details on this man. His father, Ben was the brother of my Great Grandfather Charles Herbert Gregory.
