Following on from my blog post last month about Harry CRISP or “Boots” as he was known, some more information has come to light about his death in 1918 and how the local Framlingham people contributed to a collection for a tombstone to be provided for his grave.
Framlingham Weekly News – Saturday 2nd November 1918
Framlingham Weekly News – Saturday 8th February 1919
Framlingham Weekly News – Saturday 8th March 1919
Framlingham Weekly News – Saturday 19th April 1919
This goes to show what a man he must have been and is testament to the service he had provided to the Framlingham community for many years.
Using information from Framlingham Cemetery online I have found Harry’s grave in the upper section, which confirms he was born on 5th November 1867 and died on 28th October 1918 aged only 50.
Again if anyone has any information about “Boots” or possibly a photograph it would be great to hear from you, to discover more about his life and work in Framlingham.
