Edwin Arthur Marsh was born in 1886. His parents were Thomas and Mary Marsh. The father, Thomas had been a stonemason, a trade that Arthur took over when his father died. The 1891 and 1901 census returns placed the large family in Yacht Terrace, Northop. His brother John Herbert Marsh was killed about five weeks before Arthur was killed. (He has his own page on Sychdyn’s memorial on this website). The Marsh family provided at least five servicemen for the war.
