It is believed that this is the Ernest Gregory who is on the Crich Roll of Honour. He was born in Matlock in about 1895 and worked as a cab driver. He had a brother Ezra who was also killed in the war, and he is on Matlock Roll of Honour although Ernest is not. Ernest was killed on 1st October 1918 and is buried at Anneux British Cemetery.
On a seat at Coddington overlooking the valley towards Holloway (one of the most beautiful views in England) is this plaque – E.G. is believed to be Ernest Gregory and J.G. to be John Gough, who is also on the Roll of Honour.
