GREAT WAR CENTENARY: Harry Marshall

Harry Marshall, my third cousin once removed, was born in Huntingdon in 1887, second of the ten children of George & Mary Ann (nee Young).  He grew up in Huntingdon and married Elizabeth Warner in 1908 in the town.  In the 1911 census Harry is living with Elizabeth in Royal Oak Passage and he is shown as a brewer's labourer.

Harry enlisted, in Huntingdon, in the Bedfordshire Regiment and was killed in action today in 1918.  He is buried in Kemmel cemetery in France.

We will remember them.
