Many Wedgwood collectors are also interested in the Wedgwood family, especially some of its more illustrious members. Major Cecil Wedgwood is one of those, having lost his life at the early age of 53 in the World War I Battle of the Somme. Read this nice article to see how the Wedgwood Museum is memorializng Major Cecil. The exhibit is entitled A WONDERFUL ENGLISHMAN and is one event presented to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the City of Stoke. On another note, Major Cecil grew up at Caverswall Castle, a castle with several Wedgwood connections. See our earlier post about this castle.
