Henry Tudor

Bank: Parr’s Bank

Place of work: Leek branch

Died: 13 October 1915


Henry Allen Tudor was born in Leek, Staffordshire, in 1894, the only son of George Tudor, a silk manufacturer, and his wife Mary Hannah. From about 1910 he worked for Parr's Bank at its Leek branch.


At the end of August 1914 Tudor left the bank to join the army, becoming a Private in the North Staffordshire Regiment. He went to France in March 1915, and died there on 13 October 1915, of wounds received in an attack on the Hohenzollern Redoubt the previous day. He was 21 years old.


His obituary in the bank's staff magazine recalled that 'by his geniality, sincerity and high tone of character he had endeared himself to all the staff, and the bank has lost a promising official … he was an ardent cricketer and was the most promising of the younger members of the Leek Cricket Club. During his last season with the club he was most successful with both bat and ball.'
