Pte 1551 / 376738 George Warburton
« on: January 17, 2020, 05:50:33 PM »
Pte Warburton had been a Piercer when he enlisted in 10th Bttn on 11/12/1915.  He served overseas with 2/10th & 1/7th Bttns after 1915.   George was treated for Phthisis in Warrington and Manchester Hosp from 23/May to 15/July 1919.
George was discharged with SWB & Pension on 15/7/1919. He had TB of Lung attrib to service, originating 11/4/1919. Medical of 14/2/1921 found George unable to work.
George died from disease on 9/7/1921, aged 25. Reg Oldham Q3 1921 8d/625
His mother Sarah Ann received a Pension until she died in 1923.  The Pension then went father, Ellis. 27 Grains Road, Shaw.
Almost certainly TB as cause of death.

From the Oldham newpaper...



AFTERMATH OF THE WAR

Sad circumstances surround the death of George Warburton, which took place at the home of his parents 27, Grains road, Shaw, on Saturday last.  He was 26 years of age, and before joining the army in December, 1915, was employed as a piecer at the Shaw Spinning Company's mill.  He served in A company of the 1/7 Manchester Regiment with the 2nd Division in France and Belgium, and in 1918 was gassed.  He was discharged unfit from the forces in July, 1919, and was then suffering from consumption.  He did not work again after serving in the army, and was confined to bed for a considerable period before his death.  He was a regular attender at Nook Wesleyan Sunday School, and when his remains were interred at Crompton Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon the scholars sent a beautiful wreath.  Deceased was of an amicable dispositon, and much sympathy has been expressed with the family in their loss.



I can't seem to post attachments but if anyone's interested in the DC just let me know. As far as I could tell when I visited, there is no headstone on his grave at Crompton.

As Paul has confirmed there is no current Headstone, a family member is happy to approve a new CWGC Headstone.

IFCP has reported that George Warburton's commemoration has been accepted.  His burial will soon have suitable recognition and he should receive a new headstone in coming months. https://www.cwgc.org/find-records/find-war-dead/casualty-details/75464297/GEORGE%20WARBURTON/
Great work by PaulC who did this research.

Great work Paul,
I'm in touch with George Warburton's brother's grandson (the Gt nephew).  He had also been in touch with CWGC (he may have had a tip off??) and probably helped nudge the grave adoption process along.  He will be chuffed.

Update 30/07/2022. A personal inscription has been chosen, showing the headstone is on it's way to Oldham.
"ALSO HIS PARENTS MARY ANN (1866 - 1923) & ELLIS (1864 - 1944) TOGETHER AGAIN IN HEAVEN"
