Person Details
Sneinton, Nottingham
Arthur was born about 1892. In 1901 he was living at 11 Abinger Street, Nottingham, in the ecclesiastical parish of St Phillip, with his widowed mother, Eliza (37), a lace clipper, and his sister Emma (6). Also in the household was a boarder, Arthur Rollinson, a 38 year old collier. Arthur enlisted in the Army in 1908 and in 1911 was serving with the 2nd Bn Sherwood Foresters at Crownhill Fort, Crownhill, RSO, Devon. The notice of his death in the local paper describes him as 'late of White Street, Sneinton', but the CWGC record shows that his mother later lived at 37 North Street, Sneinton, Nottingham.
He was a labourer before joining the army in 1908.
