Dedicated to the memory of all the men and women of the Bridgnorth area who died during the two World Wars.
As yet unidentified.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission has no record of a L/Corp F C Bull. There is a L/Corp F Bull, a L/Corp F J Bull and three Private F C Bulls but so far there is no evidence to connect any of these to the name on the Bridgnorth Castle Gardens Memorial.
There is no F or C Bull living in Bridgnorth in the 1901 or 1911 census. No F or C Bull was born, married or died in the Bridgnorth Registration District between 1870 and 1918.
L/Corp F C Bull is not named on any of the other memorials in Bridgnorth. He does not appear to be mentioned in the Bridgnorth Journal's fairly extensive coverage of the war.
It seems likely that L/Corp Bull moved to Bridgnorth after 1911 and only lived here for a short time before going off to war. (Compare the case, for example, of Corporal R T Wynne who came to Bridgnorth as a Police Constable in 1914.) Alternatively, he may have been a relation of a Bridgnorth resident but have had no other connection with the town.
L/Corp F C Bull is not on the list of 'The Fallen' printed in the Bridgnorth Journal on 14th August, 1920 - which appears to have been a first draft of the official list of names for the memorial.
A Private Dennis Bull, 13174 7th KSLI, born and resident in Pattingham, enlisted in Bridgnorth. He died on 2nd September, 1918. The CWGC records his wife, Mrs J W Bull, living at Griffith Green, Claverley.
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.
