Remembered Today:

Searching for Arthur Wingfield


Recommended Posts

I am researching men from my area, Stannington and the parish of Bradfield, Sheffield. who fell in the great war.

Stannington Roll Of Honour

I am trying to identify Arthur Wingfield. I have recently seen a hand written document, which could make him Albert, not Arthur. If his name is Arthur, there are three possibles listed by CWGC.

A Wingfield, service number 22659

Arthur Ernest Wingfield, service number M2/156360

Arthur W Wingfield, service number 4882

the first one seems the most likely. Can anybody do me a SDGW lookup ?

key words could be stannington, Bradfield, Sheffield, Wortley, Dungworth.

if anybody could help it would be great.

Thanks in advance

Robert :)

Thanks Enoch. I wonder if they just got his name wrong on our war memorial.

There is an Albert Wingfield from the Royal Field Artillery, but thats all I know.

There is an Arthur Wingfield, service number 26840, 'C' Company, 6th York and Lancs regiment. I think this could be my man. But he's not listed on the CWGC.

maybe he died later of wounds. after 1920, but in time to be included on our war memorial.

in the 1891 census - there is an Arthur Wingfield, aged 11 months - living at Flash Farm, Stannington. Son of Ernest & Mary Wingfield

does this help anybody.

A bit of a mystery this one
