The Fallen of Harringworth

An exploration of the eight residents of Harringworth who gave their lives in the service of their country during the Great War.

The recent talk given by Julian O’Neill on the Fallen of Harringworth was so interesting and clearly showed the detailed investigation and research by Lizzie and Julian O’Neill to find so much about the eight Fallen of Harringworth.
Over 90 people attended the evening which included Cheese and Wine with £1056 raised for the Village Appeals Fund.  The spectacular Hamper Raffle was won by Eileen from Uppingham (Harold Maxfield’s sister) – Congratulations.

BIOGRAPHY

 Julian O’Neill is a Consultant Orthodontist, working at Kettering General Hospital. He is originally from Northern Ireland, but did his postgraduate training in London and Oxford before coming with his family to live in Harringworth around 26 years ago.

He and his wife Lizzie have an ongoing interest in First World War history and have made a number of visits to the battlefields, cemeteries and memorials in Belgium and Northern France.

The project started in 2014 with Lizzie initially researching the backgrounds of our eight fallen of Harringworth. This presentation is a culmination of their travels and additional research carried out by our village historian, Sarah Chambers.
