Harry Baldwin

The Moreton Morrell War Memorial names

Harry Baldwin as one of those who died in the Great War.

 

Our research as so far not been able to establish conclusively any Harry Baldwin linked with Moreton Morrell. The Warwickshire Roll of Honour 1914 – 2005 suggests that it is in remembrance of Harry Baldwin who died in 1917 and was the son of George and Ellen Baldwin and the husband of Annie, all who lived in Southam. No connection with Moreton Morrell has been found.

The most likely person is the Harry Baldwin being remembered on the Newbold Pacey war memorial.

He was a Sergeant on the Oxford and Bucks Light Infantry who was killed in action on 19th February 1917 and who was born in Burton Dassett. In the 1911 Census he is recorded as living in Ashorne and working as an estate labourer. He was lodging at the home of Joseph and Mary Ann Cowley who had lived in Ashorne for some years. However Mary Anne came also from Burton Dassett.

The following is a link to our page on the Newbold Pacey Memorial which will tell you more about Harry Baldwin remembered on their memorial.
