Soldiers Died gives Harry Richardson’s place of residence as Ash, and that he enlisted at Guildford and was born in Dorking. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission also gives his name as Harry. The Army Register of Soldiers’ Effects records that Henry died in RC Hp [Red Cross Hospital] Bury St Edmunds. His War Gratuity was “not admissible”.

Alfred Ernest Ives, the landlord of the Greyhound, wrote to the War Memorial Committee on 1 October 1920 asking them to add H Richardson to their list.
