J SPROWELL

In its edition of 31 May 1918, the Stockport Advertiser reported that Private J Sprowell had been killed in action on 11 April 1918.

It has not been possible to confirm this from any of the usual official sources. There is no-one of this name recorded by the War Graves Commission as dying around this time. There is a similar lack of information on the General Register Office list of wartime overseas deaths. An examination of the medal entitlement records at the National Archives shows that only two men called J Sprowell served abroad during the War and both appear to have survived.

The 1901 census records two brothers living in Stockport who would have been of military service age. They are James W Sprowell and John Sprowell. If the newspaper report is accurate, it is likely that the dead soldier is one of them. It may be that his death bypassed all official channels or that he enlisted under an alias.

The newspaper report notes his parents lived at Carrington Road. There is also a letter from an unnamed chaplain which says that Sprowell was killed by a machine gun bullet. “The whole Battalion was fighting then against overwhelming odds. It will be some satisfaction to know that their gallant and glorious stand saved the line at one of the most critical moments in our history. We had great difficulty in getting the wounded away and it was quite impossible to bury the dead. I could not even bury my own greatest friend who was shot dead in my arms. However, I feel sure that the enemy would reverently bury the bodies of those who died for their country. They always do, as far as I have been able to see.”
