Andi Brigham’s story
Fred Trevan was born at 1 St. James’ Gardens, Kentish Road in the registration district of St Pancras on 13th November 1885. On 5th May 1907 he married Jennie (Sarah Jane) Colbert at St. Paul’s Church, York. She was a 22 year old spinster, he was show as living at 16 Carlisle Street and was a labourer, the witnesses were Richard Colbert and Annie Colbert. They had three children who were all girls, Mary Georgina Trevan born 1908, Doris Trevan born 1910 and Gladys Maud Trevan born 13-11-1913 (my grandmother).

He joined up for WW1 and was Private 7905 with the 2nd Bttn. Duke of Wellington’s (West Riding) Regiment. The War Graves Commission records indicate that he died aged 29 on Wednesday 5th May 1915 and recorded him as the son of the late Frederick and Emma Trevan and husband of Sarah Jane Trevan of 70 Hope Street, York. His only known brother Thomas Henwood Trevan also died in WW1 in 1918 and is buried in modern day Iraq. His memorial is on the north gate of Baghdad War Cemetary.

Fred is remembered with honour at Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial, Ieper, West-Vlaandered, Belgium, otherwise known as Flanders, where his name is carved along with those of his comrades who died mostly in the 3 battles fought in the area to the north of the town. He died during the 2nd battle of Ypres which started in April 1915 and during which, poison gas was used for the first time.

Jane Bailey’s story
Jane has donated on behalf of her granddaughter, Poppy Bailey; a resident of Holgate and our feature flower’s namesake. Poppy will be three years old in July 2014, just as the meadows are starting to flower.

Stephen Gagg’s story
Stephen has donated in memory of his grandfather Reg Gagg, who served in the 52nd Battalion, Hampshire Regiment – initially in France and then, following the end of the war, in Turkey. He survived the war and passed away in 1970, before Stephen was born.
Although his grandfather had no links to Yorkshire, Stephen is a local and lives near Grantham Drive. He became interested in the Poppy Project as a memorial to his grandfather, and because he has recently become a father; his daughter is seven months old. Stephen will watch his daughter growing up alongside the poppy and wild-flower meadows, and plans to talk to her about what they mean and why they are there.
Stephen has kindly provided a photo of Reg Gagg in his uniform (probably aged about 17 or 18), and a scanned sketch he made while he was serving, illustrating how his backpack felt after 20 miles.
