Reply To: Benjamin Pogson (1894-1914)
I’m researching this ancestor of mine. He lived at 69 Clement Street, Birkby and was killed in action in WW1 on 11.11.1914. I’m fine with info about his military service and death which is well recorded but have little about where he might have worked between 1912, when he moved to Huddersfield with his parents and his death in Flanders in 1914. He was a milling machinist in Leeds before the move. His elder brother Frank worked as a brass finisher at Hopkinsons, Valve Makers in Huddersfield. It’s possible he worked there with him but I’m not aware of any employee records available for research. If anyone has any information, especially, about where he might have worked in Huddersfield, I’d be pleased to learn about it.
