**** K603 is a duplicate but more detail given here ****

Albert Lawson was the great uncle of Julie Martin who donated these photos, he is in the centre of the group of children holding a cricket bat, the boy to his right is thought to be Julie's grandfather Robert Lawson.

   Albert was born in 1895 and baptised on the 21st April 1895, the son of William Henry Lawson and Mary Elizabeth Robinson.

In WW1 he became a gunner in the Royal Field Artillery and died aged 23 on the Somme 29th September 1918.

He is seen here in civilian clothing and in uniform.



Looking at the picture top left hand side you can just make out a row of houses, which could be Harper Lane.or South View Terrace. The children are sitting in the fields of Henshaw before it was developed and possibly the mill would have been Green Lane, the first one.
