Person Details
Wales, Yorkshire
John Ingham and Mary Marshall married in 1883 being registered in Worksop. In 1891 they were living in Wales, Yorkshire where John worked as a colliery labourer. They had two children, both boys, John born in 1884 and Arthur born in 1887, both in Wales. It is possible that both parents died before 1901 as both John and Arthur were working and living at Manor Farm, Wales, Yorks, John as a cowman and Arthur as a general agricultural labourer. A few years later the brothers had gone their own way, Arthur had married Sarah Marriot on 20 June 1908 and settled down at Barrow Hill, Derbyshire where they had their first child, Arthur in 1910 and John married in Worksop in the same year as his brother. His bride was Pricilla Barrett. The couple set up home at 36 Priorwell Road, Worksop, where John worked as a motor lorry driver for brewery.

Serg. John Ingham Worksop Guardian 26 April 1918 We have to record the death of a well respected resident in Serge. John Ingham, A.S.C., M.T. who was killed in action in France on Palm Sunday. His wife who resides at Prior Well-Road has received the following letter, dated April 2nd, from the Major in Command of Serge. Ingham’s company. “Dear Madam, It is with deep regret that I write to inform you that your husband, Serg. Ingham has been killed in action. He had served under my command since the outbreak of war, and was an excellent and reliable N.C.O., both in the discharge of his duties and in personal associations. Please accept my sincere sympathy in your loss, which I and his comrades mourn, yours truly.” Serg. Ingham was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Ingham, of Wales, and is a native of Wales himself, having resided in Worksop, which time he had made many friends. He joined the A.S.C., three months before the outbreak of war, and was called up on August 4th. 1914, when he was sent to Sercombe near Liverpool, and after a short stay there he arrived in France, where he has been ever since, excepting for two leaves, the last being in August last year. Before enlisting he was employed by the Worksop and Retford Brewery Company as a motor lorry driver. He was a member of the Druid Club and he also held office in the Carter’s Union. Deceased will be very much missed in the town, and sincere sympathy is expressed with Mrs. Ingham in her bereavement, by her many friends.
