Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find out much about Thomas Hubbard .

There were two Thomas Hubbard’s in the Whittington area around the same time, I did spend some time following the incorrect man, but the information below I feel confident refers to the Thomas Hubbard on the Brushes war memorial.

Thomas Hubbard married Florrie Colliss, from Chesterfield, at the beginning of 1918.

He served with the 1/6th Battalion Sherwood Foresters and died on 31st October 1918. His regimental number was 118459 and he is buried at Premont Cemetery,20kms south east of Cambrai.

Premont Cemetery was used by several Casualty Clearing Stations, Thomas must have been injured and was taken to 61st Casualty Clearing Station (also known as South Midlands CCS).


His medal card shows that he was awarded the British War and Victory medals which would indicate that he didn’t serve overseas in a Theatre of war until after 31st December 1915.

The Pension record card for Thomas lists his widow Florrie living at Main Road Unstone in 1919.

After repeated searches this is all the information that I can find for Thomas that I can cross reference and feel confident is correct.

Thomas is one of the seven men who are only commemorated on the Brushes War memorial and not both Whittington memorials.
