Interesting People

As I’ve been going through the various households and families quite a few interesting stories have come to light. So I’ve created this section in order to record these people and their stories. Some are soldiers, but many are not, hopefully these stories will give a feel for how WW1 affected people in the area. I’m just going to list them here as I find them and then come back and fill in the details later.

Lawrence Yorke – served in the Tank Regiment (full service record)

Henry Chapman (11 Upper Price Street) – Firework King of York!


  1. Lawrence Yorke was married to my great aunt Gladys. I have his war medals.
