ROBERT ALEXANDER MURRAY
Remembered with honour Heilly Station Cemetery: Plot I, Row D, Grave 13.
He enlisted in London, was entitled to the Victory, British War and 1914-15 Star medals, his qualifying date being 19 July 1915, and died at 38 Casualty Clearing Station, France, of wounds received in action. Unfortunately, Robert’s Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.
Son of Rose Rachel/Rachel Rose (nee BIRNIE) MURRAY of Haverstock Hill, London, and the late Saddler Serjeant-Major William MURRAY (17th Lancers).
His parents married 1891 in the Poplar, London, district. Rachel died 1940 in the Hampstead, London, district aged 79.
Robert was born 1895 in York, and resided in London.
On the 1901 Census, he is proving elusive. On the 1911 Census, a tailor’s apprentice aged 15, he was an inmate at the Home for Working Boys, Streatham, London.
