Hyde Name Origins.

Albert Rushton

Request

I am the Grandson of Alfred Rushton.
As there has been so much interest of WW1 recently I looked again at various aspects of his life. I knew he had a connection with the Newton cricket club. Also his name appears on the Victoria Street monument. If anyone reading this could supply any further information of my Grandfather I would be most grateful.



Many thanks Eddie.
