Dedicated to the memory of all the men and women of the South Staffordshire area who died during the two World Wars.

Sidney Chamberlain Millward

Sidney Chamberlain Millward was born in 1892, the son of Samuel Millward, a master grocer, and his wife Patience. The family lived in Bushbury (1901) and Great Brickkiln Street, Wolverhampton (1911). Samuel later lived at 4 County Lane, Codsall Wood.

Sidney worked as a commercial clerk. He enlisted in the 1/6 South Staffordshire Regiment at the outbreak of war and went to France with the Battalion in March 1915. He was killed in action on 13th October 1915 during the Battle of Loos at the Hohenzollern Redoubt. The 1/6 suffered heavy losses - details can be found here. Sidney is commemorated on the Loos Memorial.

Private Sidney Chamberlain Millward, 2803, was awarded the Victory and British War Medals and the 1914/15 Star.

Sidney was remembered on a memorial at the former Wolverhampton Higher Grade School. The current whereabouts of this memorial is unknown. He is included on this website because of his father's connection with Codsall and his possible family connection to Thomas Millward who is named on the Codsall memorials. Sidney's name is not included on either of the Codsall memorials.

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.
