Tom Hutchinson Tom was son of William and Elizabeth and probably the younger brother of Frank. In 1891 he was a young lad of 3.
John Hutchinson There is no John Hutchinson that seems to fit being in or around the area in the census that fits with someone who would have fought in WW1
Harry Hutchinson Harry was possibly the son of Thomas and Jane E Hutchinson who in the 1891 census was a scholar, his father worked as a stonemason
Alfred Hutchinson Alfred was born to Robert and Ruth in Egton in 1885. In 1891 was a scholar aged 6. It is more than likely that all these Hutchinson men are related in some way - all being on the same page of the census.
F W Hutchinson Francis W Hutchinson was born in 1882, the son of Thomas and Jane. Francis was the older brother to Harry, listed above.
Harry Hodgson  * Harry Hodgson was born in 1895 in Egton, the son of Thomas and Maria who in 1901 lived next door to the Frankland family, at Egton Lane End, where Thomas was a farmer. As to Harry's service in WW1 there are quite a few H or Harry Hodgson's but none that give a positive answer to which regiment he served in or where he rests or is remembered.
Robert Hodgson  
Frank Hodgson Frank born in 1897 was the brother of Harry, listed above and was aged 4 in 1901.

G W Welbury  * George Wompra Welbury was the born in 1889 in Newholm the son of George and Ann who in 1901 ran Greystone Farm in Newholm. George is found on the CWGC as George Wompra Welbury, but on the SWDTGW he is found as George Wompra. A search of the 1901 census had taken a downward spiral until the change of name was found in the sources. Which when a look at the marriate of George and Ann it is found that in the winter of 1890 one George Wompra married Ann Elizabeth Welbury - hence why it was a little hard to find them in the census and other sources.
In the summer of1916 George W married Mary J Roe. George enlisted in Whitby, joining the Yorkshire Regiment as Pte 36112. He was KIA on 2 April 1917 aged 28 and he rests in Henin Crucifix Cemetery along with 60 other casualties, two of which are unidentified.
