Other Information:

Henry (or Harry to his friends) was baptised at St Pauls Church, Hoddlesden on 9th August 1885. By 1901 the family had moved to 32 St Paul’s Terrace, Hoddlesden and the census shows that he was now working in the cotton industry as a warehouseman. Ten years later he had progressed to become a cloth looker. On 24th March 1914 he lost his father, who was buried four days later in the graveyard of St Pauls. On 27th August 1915 he enlisted into the R.A.M.C., and the following day joined the Home Hospital Reserves at Milbank, London. He traveled to London on the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway for which he received a travel warrant valued at 3/6d (17½p). Seven months later (on 18th April 1916) he elected for overseas service. It is unclear when he arrived in France but his record shows he had several short periods in hospital at Wimereux, France in 1917. On 21st March 1918, whilst serving with the 56th Field Ambulance, he was taken prisoner at Cerisy, France. He was held captive at Cassel, then was later transferred to the Muster III camp where he remained until he was repatriated, sailing home on the SS Archangel and arriving in Hull on 13th December 1918. He went to live with his mother, who had moved to Chapman Road, Hoddlesden. By this time he was complaining of muscular rheumatism. He returned to work in the cotton industry, and married Elizabeth Bridge on 9th July 1919 at St Pauls, Hoddlesden. They had one child – Harold Bridge Entwistle – born 1920. By 1930 he had moved to 2 Naples Street, Darwen and was by then employed as a clerk in the Ministry of Labour, where he remained until he retired. Henry died at the Royal Infirmary, Blackburn and was buried a few days later at St Pauls, Hoddlesden. He was the son of John Entwistle and Elizabeth Ellen (nee Place) [Information researched and kindly provided by Tony Foster]
