Remembered with honour Arras Memorial: Bay 5.
He enlisted in Bedford; was entitled to the Victory and British War medals, and was killed in action during the Battle of Arras in the front line near Monchy-le-Preux. Unfortunately, Arthur’s Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.
Adopted son of James and Mary Elizabeth (nee RATCLIFFE) NARROWAY; husband of Amy (nee CORKE) NARROWAY.
His adoptive parents married 17 November 1879 at St James’, Bushey, Herts. Mary died 1923 in Bushey aged 68, and was buried 1 October at St James’, Bushey; James died 1933 in Watford aged 82, and was buried 19 December, also at St James.
Arthur was born about 1887 in Shepherd’s Bush, London, and married 1903 in the Watford district. He resided in Watford.
On the 1891 Census, he is proving elusive. On the 1901 Census, aged 14 he lived in Bushey, with his parents and one sibling. On the 1911 Census, a printer aged 24, he still lived in Bushey, with his parents and one sibling.
