South Staffordshire War Memorials

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

H Bradbury

This entry on the War Memorial at SS Mary & Chad, Brewood, appears to refer to Harry Bradbury who was baptised at the same church on 29th July, 1894.

Harry was the son of William Bradbury, a postman who lived at Horsebrook, and his wife Sarah Jane.

Harry attended Brewood Grammar School and later became a teacher. He enlisted in the Royal Naval Division in March 1916 and appears to have been a signaller. The Royal Naval Division was a land-based arm of the Navy which fought in the trenches on the Western Front. Harry appears to have survived the war and to have died at home in 1920.

Able Seaman Harry Bradbury B.Z/3774 was awarded the Victory and British Medals.

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.
