Date of Death:

The names of E Boothby and S E Boothby appear on the Stockport War Memorial, amongst a list of names submitted for inclusion after 1925.

Sydney Edmund Boothby was killed in action on 3 June 1918, aged 19, whilst serving with the Royal Sussex Regiment. He had been born in Whaley Bridge. After the War, his parents, Mark and Margaret, were living at 72 Richardson Street, Stockport.

It is likely that E Boothby was a relative but it has not been possible to positively identify anyone, in official records, with this initial and having a connection to the local area. His identity remains unknown. It is possible he is a young man called Ernest Boothby who, in 1920, was living in Whaley Bridge. He had been conscripted into the army in 1918 but never served aboard. He was discharged through ill health on 6 January 1920. It has not been possible to find any evidence that this man died in the following few years.
