I have just finished my research into the life of Ernest Gilberthorpe. He died on 27th May 1918, he was 23 years old. His story can be read at https://oldwhittingtonops.com/gilberthorpe-ernest/
I haven’t yet found a photo for Ernest but will keep looking.
If any descendants of the Gilberthorpe family have any stories or photos they would like to share on the webpage then please get in touch.
