Remembered with honour Dernancourt Communal Cemetery Extension: Plot III, Row E, Grave 10.
He enlisted in London, and was formerly Private 5570 15th (County of London) Battalion London Regiment (Civil Service Rifles). He was entitled to the Victory and British War medals, and died at 1/1 South Midland Casualty Clearing Station of wounds received in action.
