His name is on the Memorial in Tyne Cot Cemetary, Belgium.
Fred's mother must have been profoundly affected by the war. Three of her 4 sons were involved. Fred was killed in action, John died in 1918 in the flu epidemic, and her husband had died in 1915. She was fortunate in some ways. Her youngest son Walter survived (and lived to be 83), and her 3 sons in law all survived.
