Many people moved between Tipton and Dudley, and so can be claimed as ‘theirs’ by both towns. This is reflected by men born in Dudley being on the Tipton memorial, and vice versa; a number of men are on both memorials.
On the Dudley ‘Clock Tower’ memorial there are 30 men who can be considered to be Tipton men, these are listed below.
The memorial is in the form of 720 names carved into the stone-faced walls of the gated lobby at the base of the clock tower, and are difficult to photograph. The lobby is open to the public during office hours for the duration of the WW1 Centenary.
A scholarly article concerning the memorial was published in the Black Country Bugle in August 2014 and can be linked to here: Dudley memorial article.
