30 August 1918

NEWBOULD – July 30th, died of shell wounds at a Clearing Station, France, Lance-Corporal Arthur Newbould, aged 23 years.

How little we thought as we said goodbye,
We had parted for ever and you were to die;
For the grief that we feel, words cannot tell,
For we could not be with you to bid you farewell.

Father, Mother, Brothers, Sisters and Bertha, Bank Top, Hebden.

06 September 1918

Lance-Corporal Arthur Newbould, Hebden

Much sympathy is felt with Mr. and Mrs. J. Newbould, of Hebden, who have received official notice of the death of their eldest son in France, at the age of twenty-three. Lance-Corporal Newbould had seen much service, having joined the Army in November 1915. After serving as a driver in the A.S.C., he was transferred to the Loyal North Lancs. Regiment, and went to Egypt in July, 1917. In May this year he, was transferred to France, where after nearly three months at the Front, he was severely wounded on July 30th, and died the name day at a casualty hospital. Deceased, who was a quiet, steady lad, and a general favourite, was brought up at Burnsall, where the sad news of his death was received with great regret by his many friends. For many years he was a member of Burnsall Church Choir and of the Hartlington Band of Hope; and that his good qualities were appreciated in the Army was shown by the fact that he was appointed a non-commissioned officer in the Loyal North Lancs. Regiment. Mr. and Mrs. Newbould have another son at the front, Gunner Harry Newbould, of the R.G.A.
