R Hill

On Thursday June 27th 1946, a hot-pot supper was held in Hatton when presentations from the Forces’ Benevolent Fund were made to servicemen and women who had served in WW”, or their representatives.

One of those named in the Parish Magazine report of this event was a Mr. R. Hill.

It is most likely that this was Robert Hill, born in Leek in 1918, who in 1942 married Doris Done of Hatton, the daughter of Thomas and Margaret Done.

Robert and Doris’ residence was at 43, School Lane during WW2.

They had a son and a daughter after the war ended.

Robert died in 1981 and Doris in 1990.

It is not known in which branch of H.M. Forces he served.

If anyone has any knowledge of his WW2 service, please contact Daresbury District Heritage Group.
