Worksop Guardian 25 May 1917 “Private Tom Taylor, Woodend, is reported to have died on active service. Mrs Taylor received the information through Pte Hammond, Worksop, but no official notification has as yet been received. Little hope, however, is entertained by Mrs Taylor that her husband is alive and should her fears be realised her loss will be doubly severe as her eldest son, W Mallender, was early among those on the lengthening list who have given their lives for the vindication of the nation’s honour”. Worksop Guardian 8 June 1917 “Confirmation has been received in a letter from the Chaplain of the death of Pte. Tom Taylor, of Shireoaks, whose photograph we reproduced. The memories of both Pte. Taylor and Pte. J.H. Brownlowe were commemorated at Holy Communion at St, Lukes Church , on Whit-Sunday morning, the service closing with an appropriate requiem hymn, the National Anthem, and the Last Post, the latter being blown from St, Cuthbert’s College”.
