Family background

Arthur Bisby (sometimes Bisbey) Robinson was born on the 11th February 1884 in Micklethwaite, the son of John Robinson, a mason, and his wife Elizabeth (nee Bisby). Arthur was one of six children. In 1911, Arthur (aged 27) was a bricklayer's labourer and was living at Micklethwaite with his parents, three siblings and his cousin.

We believe that Arthur married Annie Eyre in 1915 in Ecclesall Bierlow.

Service record

Arthur served in the Royal Field Artillery as a Driver first as a Territorial Force member with a service number of 777025 and then with the number 130762. Arthur's service record has not survived and we do not know exactly which Artillery Brigade he served with, but he served in 1918 and 1919 as he was listed in the Micklethwaite electoral roll as being absent due to Naval or Military Service.

After the war

After the war, Arthur returned to the area and in 1939 was registered as living in Bridge House, Micklethwaite. Arthur died on the 19th August 1958 and is buried in St.James on the Corner Cemetery, Wetherby.
