Additional information on the memorial: 1915
Henry Hilburd Barradell was born on 3rd April 1885, in the Martley District Worcestershire (place of birth given as Grimley on the 1891 census). He was the son of Mrs. Emma Barradell, later of 5 Orchard Grove, High St, Bournbrook, Birmingham, Warwickshire. Henry was unmarried and in civilian life he was employed as a market gardener. In the June Quarter 1899 his mother married Edwin Russell in the Birmingham District and the couple had a further child, Emily Russell, birth registered in the December Quarter 1899 under the Selly Oak, Birmingham Registration District.
The 1911 census states only one child from the marriage and Emma was then aged 46 so Henry and Emily are the only children she had. The family connection with Throckmorton is Henry’s mother, Emma, who was born there in the March Quarter 1865.
Henry was most likely killed in third Battle of Krithia as this took place on the day he died, 4th June 1915.
The Third Battle of Krithia (Turkish: Kirte), fought on the Gallipoli peninsula during World War I, was the final in a series of Allied attacks against the Ottoman defences aimed at capturing the original objectives of 25th April 1915. The previous failures in the first and second battles resulted in a less ambitious plan being developed for the attack, but the outcome was another costly failure for the Allies. The allied aim was, as always to facilitate the capture of Alci Tepe (Achi Baba) which commanded most of the peninsula.
