Thanks to Danny Dance, Liz Phiz, Dave Longbottom and Meg the dog for attending the 100th anniversary service of Robert Wade - the first of over 400 men from the area to lose their lives in service during WW1. Robert died on the 12th September 1914. All we know about Robert is that he was 33 and a watchmaker who lived with his parents on Chapeltown. He appears to have met his fate whilst joining the West Yorkshire Regiment in Huddersfield.
