Oxenhope in the Great War
June 21, 2016  /  608 pages  /  Nonfiction
'Oxenhope in the Great War' is the record of a Yorkshire Pennine mill village during the war years 1914 to 1919. Oxenhope, almost entirely surrounded by moorland, is adjacent to Haworth, the home of the world-famous BrontΓ« family. During the First World War, over 370 Oxenhope men left home to serve King and Country, 54 of whom did not return. Using military records, contemporary newspaper reports, family stories, letters and over 400 photographs, a comprehensive picture has been built up of this pivotal time in history. Weekly news on the home front shows the changing pattern of life in the village throughout each year, whilst an illustrated record of the Oxenhope soldiers, sailors and airmen who served gives details of their family and military histories. All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to Manorlands Hospice at Oxenhope (Sue Ryder), the former home of Private Herbert Thomas Heaton, who was killed on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, 1st July 1916.
