Frederick Moses – Breaking News

I’ve just spoken to a niece of Fredrick Moses, one of the men who’s death on the Somme is commemorated in the Walkley Reform Club memorial windows.

She is the daughter of the brother of the wife of Fred’s brother George. George was a school master in Hemsworth, North Yorkshire.

We traced her through a newspaper article looking for descendants of Fred’s family who might have family photos with Fred on them. While they don’t have a photo of Fred they do have photos of his parents and – amazingly – his school ruler on which he carved his name ‘F. Moses’. We hope to have the photos and ruler available for our Walkley’s Great War centenary exhibition next summer about the men of the Reform Club who fought in the First World War.
