Dedicated to the memory of all the men and women of the Bridgnorth area who died during the two World Wars.
Albert was born in Bridgnorth. He was baptised at St Leonard's on November 8th, 1896. He was the son of Ernest Edward Hall, Shop Assistant, and his wife Jane. They lived in St Leonards [Close]. (In other records his father's name is given as Ernest Edwin.)
Shortly after Albert's birth, Ernest changed his job, becoming a police constable. By 1901 the family had moved to Sandbach, Cheshire. In 1911 they were living in Dukinfield, Lancashire.
Albert enlisted at Glossop, eventually joining the 11th Battalion, Cheshire Regiment. He arrived in France on 25th September, 1915. He was killed in action on 9th July, 1916 during the Battle of Pozieres (a phase of the Somme, 1916).
Private Albert Victor Hall, 16931, was awarded the Victory and British medals and the 15 Star.
This memorial has mostly been compiled from official sources. It would be good to be able to expand it with more personal material - memories, stories, photos, etc. If you have any suitable material or any corrections please contact Greg. For news of updates follow @BridgnorthHeros on Twitter.
