Representatives of the Saltaire Overlookers and the West Cliff
Sunday School paid a last tribute of respect to a fellow employee. Before the war, Pte Urwin was a weaving overlooker at Saltaire Mills. He was unmarried and lived with his parents. He attended the Central Council School and the Technical Schools at Saltaire. A bright youth, he there gained two scholarships. He enlisted twelve months ago and had been in France four months. He was connected with the West Cliffe Sunday school Orchestral Band, playing the violin. Shipley Times & Express 12 October 1917
