A H Hardy is listed on Stanton Hill and Sutton memorials, but deserves our remembrance as a son of coal miner Charles and Sarah Ann Hardy, whom among his siblings were all Huthwaite born. Albert would also become a coal miner last working Butcher Wood Colliery at Teversal. Marriage to Miss Mary Broadhurst made them parents of Perley and Wilfred H Hardy. By 1911 census, family are addressed at Stanton Hill, although 15 Slater St, Sutton-in-Ashfield provides their own last known address, and town of enlistment dated 7th September 1914. Private AH Hardy was sent to France early March 1915. The appointed rank of Lance Corporal is realised on 27th August 1915.
