SUTTON WAR MEMORIAL 2014-2018

The list below is the 224 names of men killed during the Great War
most of who we believe were not included on the original war memorials
for their parishes when they were constituted in the early 1920s.
This is a revised figure from the 230 we believed earlier,
but it's still a huge number.

We have no explanation as to why they were left off the original Rolls of Honour. It was not deliberate, or negligence on anyone's part. It was a mixture of the confusion arising out of the huge numbers resulting from that war, mixed with deep grief and false hopes, and perhaps to some extent the understandable haste in getting memorials errected, all of which led to so many names being missing from public memory.

Sutton War Memorial

In 1918
We can make some presumptions, such as not all families could afford the subscription required at the time to add the name of a loved one who never came home from the war, or who did but died of wounds anyway. The amount commonly across the country was said to be 2/- (two shillings, or 10p in today's currency) and would be equal to a quarter of a week's rent for many. Poverty was rife, and not all families could manage it. Some families still could not accept the enormity of their loss, particularly if there was no grave, clinging to the hope that somehow, their man had survived and would turn up. By the time it was more apparent that hopes would not be realised, it was too late. Memorials were carved and inscribed, and so they were never added - nor remembered.

We then move on a full one hundred years.

In 2018
This list has been compiled from several sources. Primarily from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website. Firstly, if a man's name did not appear there, then the military knew nothing of him, and however he died, the CWGC would say it was not in military service during those war years 1914-19. The 'window' for attributing a man's death to war service was until 1921, to allow inclusion for all those wounded men who did come home but eventually succumbed to those wounds and would die within two years. There are many examples on the site of men whose dates of death are 1919 and 1920. All of these men here are on those lists, and can be researched and viewed for free.

Other main sources are Ancestry.com, the Hull Daily Mail archive and other sources within our city archives. By carefully corroborating a family address in the 1911 census, with known newspaper reports and family history records, it has been possible to verify this list as just of those men from St Mark's in The Groves, Wilmington, and Stoneferry who either have never been remembered before within their home parishes, or are no longer remembered now. It is worth noting, just to give an idea of the scale of this new list, that there are 25 men from Spyvee Street alone who were never recorded on their church memorial, though we do know many were listed on the many 'street memorials' for their street, but those memorials no longer exist. 25 missing, just from one street .. and not a long street at that! All those parishes just mentioned were created from the huge area that was the former medieval Sutton parish of St James' Church. When those 'newer' Victorian churches were demolished in the 1970s-80s, their surviving war memorial plaques were taken to Sutton War Memorial Garden for safekeeping - forever. But these names below are not on those memorial plaques from their former churches.

Right from 1999 - when our website first listed the 181 names we did have - in the belief we had every man that was killed - it started to become clear from very old Sutton residents that many men were missing from those lists. We at the museum vowed to try to right that wrong. But we needed help and so in 2014, then city councillor Terry Keal commenced to research those missing men, and this is his list compiled from four years of research. Terry had access to more records than us, and has done a superb job. Even now, we may still not have all of them. It is these names that are going to be inscribed on the fourth scroll, presently blank, on the base steps of the Sutton War Memorial, but it should be noted there are so many names that there is only room for the surname and initials. Terry arranged for that too. The full 'new' database of all the war dead will be maintained in the museum, free to view, as well as copies at the History Centre and Treasure House.

A short summary of 'losses by street' is placed at the very end of this list.

It is now too late to add to this list, but if any relatives of the men listed here would like to get in touch with us, with a view to attending the Armistice Day service this year commemorating the Centenary of the end of the Great War, we would certainly like to hear from them.

This is the last update. The total of new names is now fixed at 224, and that is the number that will be added to the blank stones on the war memorial.

NORD = No Other Record Discovered
.. we still have an enormous amount of information to find for quite a few of these men
but to give some idea of the enormity of the huge sadness that descended on these parishes over that four years, here is a short list of totals of those never honoured for some of the streets; but do remember, these are in addition to those that have always been on the memorials and known about.

25 from Chapman Street

25 from Spyvee Street

22 from Hodgson Street

15 from Cleveland Street

13 from Dalton Street

12 from Cornwall Street

10 from Lorraine Street

and the rest are smaller numbers from other streets.

What makes is so much more poignant is that some of those streets have totally gone, all the houses gone, just factories and warehouses there now, and not even a brick for a related family to show and remember that these men once lived there. It's as if they were erased from history, but now they will be honoured, inscribed on our memorial.
