About the memorial: There has been a Church of England School on this site since 1882 when the school first opened its doors to just fifteen boys! Over a hundred years later there are over fourteen hundred students on the roll. This school is situated on the south side of Clee Road, Cleethorpes, between the junctions with Clee Crescent. Clee Road forms the A46 road, which runs in a westerly direction from Isaacs Hill and the junction with A180 to a junction with the A1031 commonly known as Love Lane roundabout. Before 1973, the school was Clee Grammar School (Boys), under the authority of Lindsey Education Committee. In September 1973, under re-organisation, the school went comprehensive, with a lower school on Clee Road and the upper school at Chatsworth Place where it is sometimes called Beacon Hill. In September 2019, the school closed, and the new school, Bursar Primary Academy opened. The war memorials were removed from the old school & are currently in possession of North East Lincolnshire Education Committee in Grimsby. The Great War memorial is unusual in that as well as a plaque in bronze on a marble background fixed to the wall, there are also two other plaques containing photographs of the fallen in uniform. It would appear that families of the fallen were asked to provide recent photographs of their loved ones and these were added to the memorial. In most cases, the photographs are of men in the uniform of the regiment in which they served, but in one or two cases this differs. I have shown below the full memorial plaque, showing coat of arms of the school, and the inscription on the plaque, together with the names. In subsequent photographs the names of the persons commemorated and shown in more detail, in columns 1, 2 and 3 reading from left to right. The name Thompson R, appears on the Bronze Memorial Tablet, but Thompson R.M and Thompson A.R. on the photograph board. Altogether there are 41 names on the Memorial Tablet and 42 names on the photograph board. Great War 1914 – 1919 “The Humberstonian” was the Clee Grammar School Magazine, produced by the school for the pupils. Throughout the War years, the magazine published the names of the former pupils “Old Humberstonians”, who had gone to take part in the war, together with those who failed to return. Each year the number who took part increased as did the names of the fallen. On the 23rd October, 1919, The Old Humberstonian Association held its Victory Re-union dinner. The amount remaining after paying expenses amounted to £6 16s 10d (before decimalisation) which was used to form the nucleus of the War Memorial Fund. There was somewhat of an informal discussion after the Dinner, resulting in the majority of the members present expressing the feeling that the Memorial should take the form of a permanent clubhouse for Old Humberstonians. The editor of the magazine expressed his feeling that perhaps such a decision was reached without proper regard to the pros and cons of such a memorial. Such a scheme would require a large capital outlay, followed by a considerable annual expense. It would benefit the ‘Old Boys’ only, and then there was the question of the sort of licenses required and availability of opening times. Nevertheless the organisation had decided on a fund raising scheme for a memorial to be erected in memory of the ‘old boys’ of the school who had died in the Great War. In subsequent issues of the magazine, the amount in the fund is given, though it continues rise, it does but slowly, so much so that the organisation realised that the scheme for the clubhouse would be unviable. In November 1925, the following was written in the magazine:- The War Memorial, by one of the Committee Some six years ago-when the war seemed all too near for some of us, in fact very soon after the Armistice-when we were still heaving profound sighs of relief that at last the war was over, a small and enthusiastic committee was appointed to go into the whole question of the erection of a suitable memorial to those old boys who had given their all for their country. On September 24th last, the results of their efforts were crystallised in the form of a bronze tablet affixed to the wall of the School Gymnasium. That committee had its ups and downs. Beginning with a most ambitious scheme-nothing less than a substantial Sports Pavilion on the new playing field-it became increasingly clear as time went on that this was far beyond our means(especially in those early days of inflated prices), and so our early enthusiasm waned. After sending out large numbers of Appeals, to which only a fair response was received, we were soon convinced that we must be content with a hundred pounds or so instead of the thousand we were led to anticipate. And so, ideas had to be revised and a fresh scheme decided upon. But by this time enthusiasm was low and things began to drag; and drag they did for four or five years, until most of us thought the scheme had died of neglect. However, a sum of £180 had been subscribed and had to be dealt with, and the Committee decided to restrict the Memorial to this sum, to close the fund, and proceed with some tangible effort. After careful consideration it was decided to put up a Bronze Tablet bearing the names of the fallen, with a suitable inscription of the school crest and motto. Such a tablet has now been erected ad may be seen by all Old Boys who care to go and look at it. The Memorial was unveiled by Rev. A. Abbott, in the presence of the whole school and a representative body of Old Boys and others on Thursday September 24th last. ‘The Old Man’ (still the same old Mr Abbott) gave a helpful and earnest address, and the simple service of Dedication was conducted by Canon Dalby. The Lesson read by the Headmaster, a few prayers and hymns and we left in the keeping of the school; for ever the memory of those old schoolfellows of ours, with whom we had worked and played in the years of long ago. And yet surely we have left to all the generations of boys yet to pass through the school, something more than a mere tablet-a tribute, and stimulus to devotion and self sacrifice that cannot help and encourage them for all time. And so the Committee has finished and fulfilled its purpose except for the service round the Memorial on Armistice Day. To that service all Old Boys are invited to share together in the remembrance of those who have ‘gone’, and it is worth making the necessary effort judging by the Service held on November 11th, 1925. WAR MEMORIAL ORDER OF SERVICE Sentence “The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them they are in peace” Hymn: “O God our help in ages past” Lesson read by the Headmaster, Wisdom 111, vv. 1-10 Unveiling of Memorial Tablet by Rev. A. Abbott. Reading of the Inscription:”In Memory of the Old Boys of this School who gave their lives for their country in the Great war 1914-1918” Reading of the names of the 40 Old Humberstonians who fell. Dedication of the tablet by Canon Dalby Prayers. Hymn: “For all the Saints” Benediction God Save the King Last Post sounded by Bugler Scott, British Legion. After the ceremony, the president of the O.H. Association and the school captain laid wreaths at the foot of the Memorial. The Grimsby News of Friday September 25th, 1925 described the day as one of “solemn remembrance”, and ”the memorial as a massive cast bronze mural in a marble surround, set in the wall of the Assembly Hall of the school, bearing the school arms and motto, “Fox mentis honestae Gloria”. The Rev. A. Abbott, the rector of Crowle, and former headmaster of the school, in his address explained that the motto of the school meant “Ambition is the stimulus of a noble mind” The paper also listed the names of some of the audience present at the unveiling ceremony. The Grimsby News also reported that the Memorial tablet was covered with a Union Jack, before it was unveiled by Rev. A. Abbott. After the dedication, the captain of the school, S.T. Wood, laid a wreath of laurel and red roses, bound with the school colours, black & white under the Memorial. Other wreaths were laid by Mrs. Read, Mrs. Leeson, and by one of the boys on behalf of Mrs. Croft, the mother of one whose name was on the Memorial. Using the names from the 1st World War Memorial and the Photograph Boards I have compiled 2 charts showing the names of the fallen, their rank, regiment, unit, service no, names of next of kin and home address, burial place and plot or place on memorial from Commonwealth War Graves Website. In cases where there is no known grave no information other than that on the War memorial is given. Where I cannot be certain from the information given on the Photograph board as to the war record of that person I have left the entry blank.

Wood, G Roll of Honour 1st World War In the July 1919 edition of “The Humberstonian”, a Roll of Honour is printed which I re-produce below. The actual edition of the magazine is Volume IV, July 1919 number 1 edition, pages 13 to 18. The Roll was produced from information given to the magazine editors by the relatives of the Fallen/survivors of the war. In the magazine’s editions published throughout the war, the list of the fallen grew, so by 1919, this was produced as the full and last edition. I read the article in the Grimsby Central Library, Reference Section, in the Local studies area. The Roll lists the surname, initials, then rank and any decorations, then regiment and unit. In the section listing the rank of the named person, in many cases this is blank, suggesting that that person was a private or lowest ranking officer. I have used the abbreviations used by the editor of the magazine. The magazine is currently owned by North East Lincolnshire, and is in the library, and available to all to read there, not take away. The local studies section is separate part of the library, protected by a combination lock. Subscribers are asked to sign a diary to keep a track of persons using it. Only pencils are allowed to be used in this section of Matthew Humberstone School Roll of Honour 1st World War Killed in Action or Died from their wounds Name Rank Regiment Additional Information Abbott L.P.
