Private Alfred Allsop can only be confirmed as a Forester recognised from Huthwaite, given place of birth in the once commonly called Hucknall. His name is since discovered upon two other Nottinghamshire war memorials if including Underwood plus Worksop. The latter Roll of Honour represents area he enlisted at time living in the district of Mansfield, still undetailed except for suggesting age when killed. A 45 year old mature soldier holding a widely known family surname may have shared ancestral links in all three places offering remembrance, although that sadly cannot account for no next of kin details.
