Thank you for sharing photographs of these Memorials - Frederick and Herbert being together may have been missed by Peter Girling as he refers to three memorials to the memory of three gardeners killed in WW1 in the walled garden. I've contacted them and asked if there are any other references - humble gardeners worthy of greater remembrance.

Durham, Hawgood and Stowe are named on the Great Brington War Memorial and on a brass plaque inside St Mary the Virgin Church. Hawgood is also remembered on a stone cross in the churchyard:

Frederick W Harrison is not named on either memorial.

Has the Althorp Estate made a terrible mistake. From what I can see, TA/199024 Frederick William Harrison, born 04 October 1870 in Bootle and died 15 April 1918 in Liverpool, had no connection with Althorp whatsoever:

A more likely candidate is -

Frederick William Harrison baptised 01 December 1889 at Harlestone, Northants (less than 5 miles from Great Brington). 

1901 Census - Frederick W Harrison living in Harlestone.

1911 Census - Frederick Harrison living in Harlestone.

Marriage of Frederick W Harrison to Lillian B Grissell registered Brixworth, Northants, Apr-May-Jun 1914

Re #5

 

And here, I hope, is proof that I'm right:

Hi, JP,

 

The mistake was compounded, I fear, by me mis-identifying him on CWGC.

 

Thanks for the correction, Ive corrected the origin posting to save any problems. 

 

Regards,

 

Graeme
