Title: The Pearce Register of British WW1 Conscientious Objectors
Description: This collection provides the details of around 18,000 individuals who refused conscription to the British armed services during the First World War on grounds of conscience - known as ‘Conscientious Objectors’. We are grateful to Cyril Pearce, former Senior Lecturer at the University of Leeds, for the kind donation of this data. Compiled over 20 years, the database delivers a great variety of facts and events about the lives of British conscientious objectors from WW1.
Description: Guy Alfred Aldred (often Guy A. Aldred; 5 November 1886 – 16 October 1963) was a British anarchist communist and a prominent member of the Anti-Parliamentary Communist Federation (APCF). He founded the Bakunin Press publishing house and edited five Glasgow-based anarchist periodicals: The Herald of Revolt, The Spur, The Commune, The Council, and The Word, where he worked closely with Ethel MacDonald and his later partner Jenny Patrick.
Description: Guy Alfred Aldred, the son of a lieutenant in the Royal Navy, was born in Clerkenwell on 5th November 1886. He was named by his mother after Guy Fawkes. On 14th April 1916, Aldred was arrested and charged with failing to report for Military Service. When he appeared in court he explained that he refused to fight because he was a conscientious objector. On 4th May he was fined £5 and handed him over to the military authorities.
