    Can you please tell me if you have any information how my grandad was killed on the 30 th July 1916 I think it was Albert. His name was William Hopkinson 7047(I think) . He lived at 15 Charles Street , Brampton . Chesterfield .
    Regards John Hopkinson

      Hello John. William was serving with the 11th Battalion and died in the field ambulance so likely due to enemy shelling. I’m 99% certain that there is an account in the Derbyshire Times from a few days latter. Its on microfilm in Chesterfield Library local studies section – all indexed by names. I think that I have a copt, but all my items are in storage and if may be a few days/weeks before I can access, cheers Mike
