Another Staveley lad…..

Sherwood_Foresters_BadgeThe Staveley Remembers team work with a number of local groups and individuals to make sure that every local WW1 casualty is remembered. Louise has been researching the men of New Whittington and has just published the life story of Ernest Booth who was born at Seymour – the terraces at Woodthorpe built by the Staveley Coal and Iron Company for their miners. He is not listed on the Staveley Memorials but will be added to our on-line roll of honour.

Private Ernest Booth, 10821, 1st Bn., Sherwood Foresters (Notts and Derby Regiment) died on 15th May 1915 aged 27. He is buried at St Bartholomew’s Churchyard, Whittington. You can read his story on Louise’s website here


Stuart and Sally Mullins are the researchers of the Brimington War memorial. They have recently returned from a visit to the WW1 cemeteries and have kindly taken photographs of the headstones of several Staveley casualties for us.

The photographs will be added to the details on the Roll of Honour.
