Harry was the eldest of four children of John Thomas Scott and his wife Emma, nee Jones. Having started married life with Emma’s parents at Albion Street, the couple moved to Crowgyll Place sometime before the 1901 census and were still there in 1911 although by then John had died. Harry was one of the many thousands who died on the first day of the battle of the Somme though the family didn’t find out for some time as was revealed in an article in the Shipley Times & Express on 13 April 1917: On Sunday evening last a memorial service was held at Rosse Street Chapel for two who have laid down their lives in the war. Ernest Cryer of Valley Road and Harry Scott of Crowgyll Place, the later a well-known member of the Rosse Street Brotherhood. Both have been missing since 1st July last year and have recently been reported killed. A large number of friends attended to pay respect to their memory. Harry was mentioned again on 22 March 1918 when ‘a group photograph surmounted by ivy and covered with a Union Jack was unveiled on Wednesday night at the Rosse Street Brotherhood Social Rooms to the memory of five fallen members.” And on 5 July 1918, Rosse Street Brotherhood included an In Memoriam notice in the newspaper.
