Some time ago I heard about a project to research and preserve the WW1 Roll of Honour at St Stephen’s church in Hyson Green, Nottingham. As my Great-great Uncle Harold Richardson is mentioned on it I contacted the church and was invited to the first meeting.

I was able to provide some information about Harold and was keen to return a few weeks later to the final presentaion of the project. It was lovely to see so many members of the community of different ages & backgrounds taking an interest in their local history.

At the time the church was being built in 1901, Harold lived directly opposite at 29 Bobbers Mill Road. It’s sad to think that fifteen years later he would be commemorated, along with many others from this area, on the church wall.
