Remembered with honour Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial: Panel 45.
He enlisted in Hertford, and was formerly Private 6043 Hertfordshire Regiment. He was entitled to the Victory and British War medals, and was killed in action. Unfortunately, Charles’ Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.
Son of William and the late Alice Rebecca (nee CRANE) MANSER; husband of Mary E (nee ALLEN) MAUSER.
His parent’s marriage is proving elusive. Alice died 1915 in the Hertford district aged 62.
Charles was born 1891 in Hertford, and baptised 3 June 1891 at All Saints and St John’s, Hertford. He married 1912 in the Hertford district; they had three children. Mary never remarried and died 1928 in the Hertford district aged 41.
On the 1901 Census, aged 9 he lived in Hertford, with his parents and three siblings. On the 1911 Census, a farm labourer aged 20, he still lived in Hertford, with his parents and no siblings.
