Person Details
Sheffield, Yorkshire
Charles Scott and Alice Darwin married at Retford in 1884 where they had a child, William, the following year. They all moved to Sheffield where Charles worked as a domestic gardener and the family lived at 11 Langdon Street, Ecclesall Bierlow, Sheffield. In 1887, Arthur was born and in 1887, and their third son, Charles in 1891. 10 years later, the family were resident at 33 Clnton Street, in Worksop, Charles senior still gardening. However, fortunes appear to change by 1911, as Charles had taken over as publican, running the Kings Head on Carlton Road with his wife, Alice assisting as well as employing an Hotel servant girl. Son William had married by 1908 and Arther was working as a bricklayer.

Sapper Arthur Scott Worksop Guardian 8 September 1916 Mr and Mrs Charles Scott, of the Kings Head Hotel, Worksop, have received the sympathy of many friends this week in the bereavement which has befallen them by the death of their son, Sapper Arthur Scott, R.E., killed in action. Sapper Scott was 30 years of age, enlisted last March. He was drafted to France about a month ago, and was in Worksop on leave just previous to going out. He was only in France about a week before he was killed. Previous to enlistment he was employed by Messrs, Moore Bros., contractors, Shirebrook. Sapper Scott was well known in the town, and was respected by all who knew him. He was a well conducted young man, and a promising soldier, liked by all his comrades, and trusted by officers. His parents will have the sympathy of all our readers in their great sorrow.
