Searching for Arthur W Brown

Recommended Posts

I am looking for Arthur W Brown - I have only his name, but I have hopefully narrowed my search down to several candidates.

Arthur W Brown's name appears on a war memorial inside a church at Oughtibridge, near Sheffield. This memorial includes men from Worrall as well.

could anybody do me a SDGW lookup on these men.

the key words for where he lived could be sheffield, oughtibridge, worrall, bradfield, wortley.

the men are

Arthur William Brown. 42529 - Royal Inniskilling Fus.

Arthur William Brown. SD/4950 - Royal Sussex reg.

Arthur Wilson Brown. 780229 - RFA

A W Brown. 262363 - RFA

A W Brown. 56724 - Lancashire Fus.

the 1901 census, doesn't seem to show anybody of that name in the area, which makes the search even harder.

Thanks in advance.

Robert

my research so far is on my website

This one does not show up on SDGW - probably beacause his death was after 11/11/18

Thanks lads for that :D

I've still got a bit of work to do, by the looks of it.

the man in the York & Lancs is interesting. This was a regiment that many people from the area joined.

maybe the 1901 census will eventually give me some answers

Thanks again.

As I have said before, the information I receive from this forum is ....

First Class.

Cheers
