Remembered Today:

20855 Pte William Bramwell 11th Notts & Derby


Recommended Posts

Greetings from a very wet Sherwood Forest


Not so much a long shot this time but still a problem. I have a death plaque to 20855 Pte William Bramwell  11th Notts & Derby Regt.

K.I.A. 1/7/16. I bought it in Mansfield  , Notts  many years ago . I believe that Pte Bramwell  came from that area.

My difficulty is that I cant find a M.I.C or medal roll for him. There must be one but it is eluding me.

Can any of you good folk help?

Pretty confident that this is your man as the actual document has his birth as "Mansfield Woodhouse" which is the same as on his SDGW Ancestry record..

There is an image of him in one of the Mansfield paper, can't remember which one. He worked at Langwith Colliery.

Many thanks BRONNO, another fact for my file on him. He died 103 years ago today with many of his comrades in the 11th Notts & Derby Regt  1/7/1916
