    Fanny Martin and her only child Henry William came to live at Dandy Row after her husband William died in 1891.

    Henry William Martin was born in 1887, and we have found that he attended St Peter’s School.

    Henry Martin died, aged 30, on 15th September 1917  after being gassed the day before. He is buried at Mendinghem Military Cemetery, Belgium, Grave VII. G. 15. He is mentioned on both the St Peter’s war memorial (now at St Martin’s church, London Road) and on the memorial at the Guildhall. This information has been found and transcribed, with permission, from the website ‘Remember the Fallen’ which is ‘dedicated to all the men and women who sacrificed their lives so that we may live and enjoy our freedom today. A searchable database of those commemorated primarily on war memorials and rolls of honour in Worcestershire (with a small number from Warwickshire, Gloucestershire and Shropshire) can be found at:
