Pte Edwin Woodcock Worksop Guardian 25 August 1916 Still another late employee at the Manton Colliery, whose death we have to announce this week is Pte Edwin Woodcock ( familiarly known as “Ted”), the son of Mr and Mrs Charles Woodcock of White Hart Yard, Worksop. Some little time ago his parents were notified by the War Office that he had been wounded, but no particulars were given, and this week the news of his death in action has been received. It seems that the deceased did not die from the wounds referred to in the first instance, as the last message states, “killed in action,” and gives the date of his death as July 7th. The last letter received by Mrs Woodcock from her son was dated June 22nd. The deceased belonged to the Notts and Derby Regiment, which he joined after about a month after the war’s announcement and has been twice to France. He was for a time at Leicester Hospital, returning to the front shortly after Easter. His father has also been attached to the National Reserve and another son is now in training. The sympathy of everyone will be meted out to Mr and Mrs Woodcock in their great trouble. Deceased was 21 last June.
His name is commemorated on the Thiepval memorial, Somme, France. Research by Colin Dannatt
