Peter Woodward was born on 20 August 1896, at Fir Grove Farm, Whitley. His parents were Sandy and Mary Woodward. He had three siblings – Albert b1897, John b1899 (who also served in WW1) and Alec b1907. By 1911, the family had moved to Moore, where Sandy was farming at Village Farm.
Peter’s name appears on the Roll of Honour in Daresbury Church, but we have no records of his military service.
After the war he returned to the area and in 1939 was a dairy farmer at Ashton’s Farm, Burtonwood. He had married Sarah E Green in 1930. They had three children – Alec b1931, James b1933 and John b1940.
