Richard Price


Baptised on 20 November 1884 at the same time as his brother William, Richard was living at the time of the 1911 Census with his widowed mother Elizabeth Price on Crown Road. He was a brother also of Thomas Price. His Attestation Form shows that he enlisted on 18 December 1903 at the age of 19 years and 4 months with the Army Service Corps as a Driver, for ‘2 years in the Colours and 10 years in the Reserve.' He was transferred to 1st Class A Reserve on 17 December 1905 and was mobilised at Aldershot on 6 August 1914. He seems to have been confined to barracks many times, mostly for dirty harness or for being absent for stable parade. His Service No. was T/21455. In 1921 he applied for the 1914 Star for service in France and it was sent to him. He married Alice Ilbrey from Longworth at Wheatley Church on 30 November 1918. Born in Milton-under-Wychwood in 1880, Alice had been a dormitory maid at Culham College in 1901 and was described in 1911 as a housemaid, living in the Oxford parish of St Giles. Richard died in Oxford in March 1956 at the age of 72.

He lived with his brother William at 8 Crown Road.
