Sutton offices of the Nottinghamshire Free Press relayed any breaking news concerning the emerging fate of so many locally identified men involved in the Great War. Press would afterwards annually publish the Huthwaite roll of honour, officially compiled by and for Huthwaite District Council displaying remembrance upon their cemetery cenotaph. That listing was dutifully also echoed inside the Huthwaite parish church, hanging a framed scroll furthermore adding identifiable parishioner christian names.
The All Saints parish church marked significant loss of its own Young Men's Bible Class members. Ten names on a west nave stained glass window costing £93 did include a young gifted Sutton musician who'd been appointed church organist. However, class leaders mother Mrs Taylor unveiled this on 12th June 1921 revealing dedicated remembrance worded To the Glory of God and in memory of the leader and members of the Young Mens' Bible Class who gave their lives in the Great War, 1914-1918.
Twenty one members of a Huthwaite Methodist chapel were clearly memorialised in roll of honour on a panel mounted remembrance plaque displayed inside their Sherwood Street Church.
Several decades of weather staining had left the long neglected Huthwaite cenotaph Great War listing rather difficult to read when attempting full 2004 transcription to better identify all those individuals. But unprecedented task first begun by an Imperial War Graves Commission to commemorate all First World War losses has extended reference through a renamed Commonwealth War Graves Commission covering 1.7 Million personal through two world wars.
Ancestral records have since helped greatly personalise fuller memoriam, with that combination of available online resources also discovering justification for more names worthy of future remembrance presenting two fuller Huthwaite Online rolls of honour.
The Huthwaite cemetery Great War cenotaph has since doubly served as the World War memorial after accommodating another plaque commemorating more lives lost through a Second World War. Official roll of honour would be compiled under an enlarged Sutton District Council, presenting a highlighted list despite loss of some lettering. All Saints Church again reflected fuller names.
Personalised remembrance is limited until timely release of further records. But additional names are so far found.
Ashfield District Council took over broader responsibility for the Huthwaite memorial, eventually seeing it gain 2012 renovation work possibly prompted by locally concerned councillors. Structural integrity was assured while replacing long missing World War Two lettering. Years approaching centenary marking the First Great War finally demanded a more presentable full monumental clean.
