Camp at Stourbridge?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

Attached image is taken from the Scottish death register: the death occured on 13 April 1917 at 18 Westgate, Friokheim, which I assume was the family address; father of the deceased infant was Lance Corporal Charles Withington, 329 Coy (or 321, it's not clear) Royal Defence Corps.

I'm trying to establish where L/Cpl Withington was stationed at the time. To my eyes it looks like Hagley, Stourbridge, though I could be wrong and I can't make out the name of the camp.

Does anyone recognise the name of the camp, or can anyone tell what it says?

Isn't Stourbridge in the Midlands, eg River Stour through Cradley??


I am a little way off, Stourbridge is in or part of Dudley,West Midlands, there is an area there Treherns Fields which I believe was formerly Treherns Farm, a long shot it may have been the sight of Trehearns Camp??

According to Google Maps there is a Hagley two or three miles south of Stourbridge. Not sure if that helps?

Thanks for the replies, chaps! Trehearns Camp looks like it might be right, so I'm happy to go with that. I'll see if I can find out any more...
