Charles William Rumbelow was my fifth cousin twice removed, the eldest of five children (four boys & one girl) of George and Laura (nee Mace). Born in 1897 in the village of Wicken in Cambridgeshire, he seems to have lived in the village all of his short life. Aged only three in the 1901 census, he was at school by 1911 - then living with his grandparents.
And that is all I know about him; other than that he died one hundred years ago today, in Birmingham, having been serving with the Queen's (Royal West Surrey) Regiment. He is buried in the churchyard in Wicken.
We will remember them.
