Arthur Savage, born 23 Aug 1906 in Nottingham, to parents Alfred Savage & Agnes Waterfield. Arthur would marry Alice May Coombes on 26 Mar 1927.

Arthur started working at the age of 14 in the Radford Coal Pits, and would work the pits his whole life.

By all accounts, he was “a bit of a lad” when he was younger. He was a quiet man, wise, with a great sense of humour. He had wild curly hair that went white early on, was loved and respected by all that knew him. Everyone knew him by “Harry”.

Later in life, he enjoyed most of all sitting around with his ex miner friends at the White Horse and sup on a pint of his Shipstones Ale.

Arthur & Alice’s first two children died as infants… Harry Alfred & Kenneth, born in 1927 and 1929 respectively.
