An ongoing project to commemorate and research the lives of those who appear on war memorials and rolls of honour in the local area, who served in the military, or whose deaths were linked to conflict.

Huddersfield's Roll of Honour: 1914-1922

The following extract is from Huddersfield's Roll of Honour: 1914-1922 (2014) by J. Margaret Stansfield:

INMAN, GEORGE HAMILTON. (Served under the assumed name of GEORGE MARSH). Trooper. No 21038. 6th (Inniskilling) Dragoons, attached 1st Life Guards. Born Storths, Moldgreen, 10.7.1880. Son of Richard Henry and Sarah Inman, Colne Villa, Kings Mill Lane, Huddersfield. Educated Almondbury Grammar School. Employed as a motor engineer at the Karrier Car Works. Single. Embarked for France 5.10.1914. Landed at Zeebrugge 7.10.1914. Killed in action on Zandvoorde Ridge, 30.10.1914, aged 34.
During the research for this book I discovered that the Commonwealth War Graves Commission held no records for this man. Due to the efforts of Esther Barrett Page, of the CWGC, and myself we concluded that George Hamilton Inman had served under the assumed name of George Marsh. His name is now engraved on the MENIN GATE MEMORIAL TO THE MISSING.
