John William Shaw

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone out there a descendant of John William Shaw, ARP Warden killed on 13 December 1940 in the Sheffield Blitz on Suffolk Road.  He is one of many interesting persons from history buried at Loxley Cemetery that we, the Friends Group, are researching and would like to make contact with any living relative, especially someone with personal information about John William.

He married Marjorie Lewis in 1935, they had one son, also John W Shaw the following year.

Hi AKAMD.....please discount the above...I posted too quickly and the info is wrong...apologies.

John was born on the 9th October 1910.

He did marry Marjorie Lewis but in the December quarter of 1936.

The couple lived on Mawson Lane, Worrall.

John was killed on Sheaf Street.

Marjorie was expecting their child when John was killed....their daughter Sylvia M was born in the summer of 1941.

Marjorie married George H Swift in 1951.

It doesn't appear they had children, unless they moved away from Sheffield.
