CREWE, BOER WAR MEMORIAL

Compiled and copyright © Amy Kitcher 2004

The memorial stands in the centre of Queen's Park, Victoria Avenue, Crewe, Cheshire being erected in 1903. The memorial takes the form of a tall stone column supporting the statue of a soldier, and guarded by stone lions. There are metal plaques on the base that list those from the local area who served in the Boer War, 1899 - 1902. Those who died are at the bottom of the list. These names, when first transcribed, were in order of Regiment followed by the men who died. For ease of reference the names from the memorial have been sorted into alphabetical order, the first section is those who served, the second those who died, each in its own alphabetical sequence. For the true list there is another web site Carl's Cam which has the memorial listed in it's true order.

TROTTER

Charles Maitalnd Forbes

Lieutenant, Volunteer Section, 2nd Battalion, Cheshire Royal Engineers. Killed at Chatham after being thrown from his horse on 11th April 1901. Aged 19.

Article from The Times Newspaper, Saturday 13th April 1901, page 13, column F:

Mr. W. J. Harris, one of the coroners for Kent, held an inquest yesterday at the Casualty Hospital, Brompton Barracks, Chatham, on CHARLES MAITLAND FORBES TROTTER, aged 19, a lieutenant in the 2nd Cheshire Engineer Volunteers, who was killed by being thrown from a horse on Wednesday evening. He was a son of the Rev. C. Trotter, vicar of Polesworth, Warwickshire, and had come to the School of Military Engineering, Chatham, with Lieutenant E. Davenport and a party of Engineer Volunteers (Railway) from Crewe for a course of training preparatory to proceeding on active service in South Africa. Lieutenant E. Davenport, of the 2nd Cheshire Volunteers, stated that he rode on to the Chatham Lines with Mr. Trotter. They parted company in consequence of the witness's horse being restive. Mr. Trotter's mare was then very quiet. About 20 minutes afterwards, he received a message, and found Mr. Trotter at No. 5, Marlborough-villas, overlooking the Lines. He appeared to be in some pain, but was, apparently, not suffering acutely. The witness said, “What's the matter, old man?” He replied, “I'm only badly winded,” but did not say anything about the accident. About ten minutes afterwards, however, he died. Lieutenant-Colonel J.H.C. Harrison, commanding the service battalion of the Royal Engineers, said he was walking on the Lines when he saw that the mare was running away. She took a straight course to the railings, and he saw the rider lurch from one side to the other, and then fall to the ground. He ran to the spot, but before he got there Mr. Trotter got up and walked up the steps of No. 5, Marlborough-villas. Dr. E. H. Hugo said that death was caused by rupture of the stomach. The jury returned a verdict of “Accidental death.”
