Person Details
Retford, Nottinghamshire
Charles Woodward and Charlotte Morris were both born and were married in Retford in 1884. Over their married life they produced six children, Henrietta, May, Enoch, Daniel Daisy and Gladys all born in Retford. Charles worked as a labourer in the local India Rubber Works and later as a rubber sole maker. In 1901 the family were living at 46 Nelson Street, Retford but had moved to 13 Century Road, Retford by 1911. The couple's fourth child, Daniel who was born in 1891 married Ada Thorpe in 1913 and had two daughters, Ada in 1913 and Joyce in early 1919. As Daniel was killed in the war in November 1918, he would have never seen his last born child.

Royal Engineers
Daniel served in the Royal Engineers Railway Operating Dept., most that likely due to his experience working in a railway environment in his civilian life. He was buried in the Abbeville Communal Cemetery Extension, France
