In light of a family tree website, William now appears claiming rightful place on the Huthwaite memorial. William was born 11 Oct 1890 at Sutton-in-Ashfield, the second son of five children resulting from Dec 1888 marriage at Mansfield between George Burton Adlington and Adah Gelsthorpe. After family moves between Mansfield and Worksop, they reclaimed closest ties held within Hucknall-under-Huthwaite.
Commonwealth War Graves Commission Son of George Burton Adlington and Ada Adlington, of 15, Carlton Rd., Worksop, Notts. - Narrowed down by research exploring other vaguely identified matches.
