After transcribing more than 200 Rolls of Honour from around Sheffield we thought we had transcribed them all, but we know we still have more to transcribe and discover. We often come across old images of them, hear tales of a Roll of Honour from contacts to our website and we have also had images of ‘New’ Rolls sent to us.
Here is a list of Rolls of Honour/Memorials we know once existed. We do have transcriptions/images of some of these Rolls, but we would like help in finding the whereabouts of any of these in the list. Even better would be an image/knowledge of any ‘New’ Rolls we have not yet discovered.
Please Contact us with any help you have
Thank you in advance for any help.
R.B. Mattocks, Butchers, Ellesmere Road.
From Picture Sheffield
Information from Richard Ineson, "Mattock's were a famous old butchering family, they had quite an empire. I had a look round this shop, at the invitation of the then manager, a Mr. Gay, I think. The shop had not really been altered since being built, it was a superb example of a Victorian butcher's shop. There was even a framed certificate on the wall, bearing the flags of all the allied nations in the 1st World War, saying "The Following employees of R. Mattock & Sons have enlisted in his Majesty's Forces" followed by a list of names. Upstairs were disused offices of the company, all fitted out with desks and pigeon holes full of old invoices etc. How I wish that I had taken some photographs of this 'frozen in time' building. I imagined that it would always be there, and now it's gone."
