Personal History:
There are 10 males named "R Howe"  on the 1911 Census living in Derbyshire, of appropriate age, but none with the second initial 'E'. No-one with the surname "Howe" and initials "R E" died in the Buxton area at the appropriate time to be included on the Memorial.

Military History:
There are no obvious records on the CWGC or SDGW Databases. The CWGC identifies 14 "Private Howes", but only one with the second initial "E" - Pt. 13586 Richard Edwin Howe, 1st Battalion, Coldstream Guards, who came from Bridgwater, Somerset.

The SDGW database has six "Private Howe", all with two initials, but not listed as "Born", "Enlisted" or "Living" in the Buxton area.

Commemorated on:
