Margaret was a teacher the youngest daughter of Inspector Roberts of the Bucks Constabulary. Alfred enlisted in the Labour Corps in 1915 and was later discharged as unfit. It would seem he had a mole on his back that got infected by the wearing of his back pack. Unfortunately he was not aware of this until he noticed a stain on the back of his shirt. He was operated on in November 1917 but died the following March.
The first to die on October 27th 1914 from war wounds received in action was rifleman Bertie Keen who was from Chalvey. Bertie was 35 years old and according to the 1911 Census had worked for Horlicks.

Another man with only the initial is R Butler of the Grenadier Guards who died 8th April 1916 aged 41. We think he was Robert.

Reginald was born in Slough in 1893 the son of Alfred and Bertha, although he was baptised in Warwick. He married Mildred Preedy in 1917 in Greenford Parish Church and was already in the army. On the marriage certificate his father is also said to be in the army. Reginald’s daughter Mildred was born in Slough 1918 just 6 months before Reginald died on 1st November.

Walter was the last to die on January 30th 1920. He had been with the Rifle Brigade and whilst carrying out his duties as a stretcher bearer was hit in the back by a shell.
G E Meredew
Yet another with just his initials. This I believe to be George Edward of the South Staffordshire Regiment dying March 20 1919. He had worked for Elliman’s and was expected to return to them after discharge. He was actually discharged with Cerebral Meningitis with a note to say he was not likely to recover. His wife wrote to the ministry to say that he was “very ill”.
