Today I remember a man who has already had a mention in this blog in 1914: Albert Pridmore, my sixth cousin a few times removed, was born in Wittering, near Peterborough, in 1879. He was the second of the eleven children (nine boys, two girls) of William & Sarah, nee Culpin, who moved to the Sheffield area soon after he was born. After schooling in the town, Albert worked as a labourer.
In 1913 he married Margaret Richardson in Sheffield and they begat five children before Albert enlisted in the Yorks & Lancs Regiment and was sent to France & Flanders to join the Expeditionary Force from January 1916. He was wounded in action on 2 May 1917 and repatriated to Bradford Military Hospital.
Where he died one hundred years ago today. He was buried in Burngreave cemetery in Sheffield.
We will remember them.
