Henry Haynes was born at Monk Hopton, Shropshire, and in 1914 was married to Lillian. They lived at 49 Belle Vue, Wordsley. He volunteered for the Worcesters and joined the 4th Battalion which was in training for the Gallipoli campaign. They landed with ANZAC forces on the 25th April 1915 and, despite three battles at the village of Krithia, failed to capture the peninsula. The contest then declined into trench warfare among the gullies and ravines above Suvla. Heavy rain and frost added to the problems of the troops in late November and Private Henry Haynes was killed in action on the 5th December. He is buried in Azmak Cemetery, Suvla, (II A 22) and commemorated on the Wordsley Memorial.
High Street, Wordsley, West Midlands, DY8 5RU
