Friends of Marple Memorial Park's WWI Timeline Tribute display in the park has been updated with information about Stanley Ridgeway.

Poor Stanley tried to get into the army in November 1914 but was rejected because his chest measurement was too small. He threw himself into his activities in the Sea Scouts and managed to build himself up enough to be accepted into a Manchester Pal's Battalion in October 1915.

The display is fixed to the railings in front of Hollins House in the park. It starts on the far left with an A4 poster explaining what's happening and an information card about Stanley Ridgeway has now been added. Cards about the remaining men will be added progressively over the next 2 years on the 100th Anniversaries of their recorded dates of death.

Friends of Marple Memorial Park's WWI Timeline Tribute display in the park has been updated with information about John William Hallam.

Sadly, apart from the fact that he was born in High Lane, very little in known about John Hallam's life before the war and there is no known photograph.

I've not been able to figure out where Goyt Bank or Castle Brow are from on-line maps but you'd think it was close to the River and / or the Windsor Castle in that Lowerfold area.

In the newspaper article of the time it mentions Goyt Brook rather than Bank. Have you seen the name Goyt Bank or Brook anywhere?
 
Yes it's on the row of houses were I live. There's a stone plaque on the wall above no 5 Goyt Bank Lowerfold. A few of the houses around hear have name plates on them. I will take photo and send to you.

Is Castle Brow Lowerfold? If so it's the same row were I live.

Friends of Marple Memorial Park's WWI Timeline Tribute display in the park has been updated with information about George Frederick Taylor.

Friends of Marple Memorial Park's WWI Timeline Tribute display in the park has been updated with information about Samuel Platt.

Spare a thought for Samuel's mother, Sarah. Her husband was killed in a car accident near their home not long before 24 year old Samuel was taken from her. Just over one year later she would loose her other son Thomas to the war too, leaving her completely alone in the world.

The display is fixed to the railings in front of Hollins House in the park.

Friends of Marple Memorial Park's WWI Timeline Tribute display in the park has been updated with information about Joseph Holland.

Joe's was the first death of 1917 for Marple, things having been "quiet" since November. By the end of 1916 45 of 141 had been lost, not quite a third of the final total.

Joseph was not from the area but settled in High Lane after marrying a local girl, Florence. After the war Florence moved to live in the USA and was hopefully able to start a new life.

The display is fixed to the railings in front of Hollins House in the park. It starts on the far left with an A4 poster explaining what's happening and an information card about Joseph Holland has now been added.

Friends of Marple Memorial Park's WWI Timeline Tribute display in the park has been updated with information about Ernest Henry Trust.

There doesn't seem to be much detail known about Ernest and his life in Marple but there are a couple of great photos, one from his time in service and the other as a younger lad a few years earlier in what looks like a Boys Brigade uniform.

It starts on the far left with an A4 poster explaining what's happening and an information card about Ernest Trust has now been added. Cards about the remaining men will be added progressively over the next 3-4 years on the 100th Anniversaries of their recorded dates of death.
