Harry Goodacre – 7 North Street

Harry Goodacre was born in Basford, Nottinghamshire and was living at Knighton Leicestershire in 1901. In 1911 he was 12 years old and living with his younger sister and brother and his parents at 7 North Street. At that time his father was working as a bricklayer at an agricultural implement works in Stamford.

Possibly the family had moved back to Nottinghamshire by the time he enlisted – a Harry Goodacre from Nottinghamshire was in killed in action on 4th November 1918.

7 North Street has been demolished at some time in the past and the site is now in 2015 a single storey cycle showroom and shop.
