HENRY ALFRED REYNOLDS
Remembered with honour Thiepval Memorial: Pier and Face 11A and 11D.
He enlisted in Watford; was entitled to the Victory, British War and 1914-15 Star medals, his qualifying date being 16 December 1915, and was presumed killed in action. Unfortunately, Henry’s Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.

His parents married 1868 in the Northampton district. William died 1922 aged 73; Harriet died 1922 aged 72; both on the Northampton district.
Henry was born 1869 in Northampton, and baptised 2 August 1874 at St Edmund’s, Northampton. He married 1905 in the Hemel Hempstead, Herts, district; they had two children. Kate never remarried and died 1962 in the St Alban’s, Herts, district aged 89.
