CAMBRAI MEMORIAL, LOUVERVAL Panel 8.
Son of William and Emma Webster and a native of Sutton-in-Ashfield, Notts. Horace was husband of Mary Ellen Webster of George Street, Huthwaite, Mansfield, which was within our Ecclesiastic Parish but bordering just outside the former Huthwaite Urban District boundary. This meant he did gain listing on the Sutton memorial with little known recognition for his own Huthwaite family residence.
