Lance Corporal
2/8th Bn Sherwood Foresters (Notts & Derby Regiment)
Lance. Corpl. A.F.Tatlow Worksop Guardian 8 June1917 This week again we have to record the deaths of a number of Worksop Soldiers, who have either fallen in battle, or died of wounds. Amongst the number is Lance Corpl. Arthur Farrand Tatlow, of the Sherwood Foresters, son of Mr and Mrs. Arthur Tatlow, Bridge Place, who married on August 29th last year, at St. Anne’s Church, to Miss Gertrude Barrowcliffe, 11, Devonshire Street. The deceased soldier, who was only 24 years of age, was a well conducted and most respected young man, and great sympathy is expressed with his widow and other relatives in the loss that has befallen them. Before enlisting Lance Corpl. Tatlow was employed as a mechanic. He joined the Sherwood Foresters on February 2nd 1916 and shortly afterwards he was in Ireland taking part in the fighting at Dublin. On February 3rd last year he was drafted out to France, his marriage taking place in the interval, and it was here that he sustained the wounds which ended fatally. In a letter to his widow, received on Monday, the Chaplain, the Rev, A.R. Horne, says that after being brought to Hospital, Tatlow was taken much worse. Gangrene set in, and he passed peacefully away a very short time afterwards. “I can’t say how sorry I am for you,” he writes, I had hoped so much he might be spared, but the gangrene made it hopeless. I buried him in our little cemetery, with a Cross to mark his grave. His affects will reach you from the Base Records Office. With my deepest sympathy.” Tatlow had many friends in Worksop, who will hear of his death with much regret. He was one of the many of whom the town has every reason to be proud.
