Maidenhead War Memorial
 
 
"Their bodies are buried in peace; but their name liveth for evermore."
 
 




Today I wanted to post about two members of my husband's family and their scarifice in The Great War.

C. W. Turner - Charles William Turner was born in 1898 in Boyne Hill, Maidenhead to Walter Thomas Turner, a general labourer and his wife Jessie Rebecca White.

E. H. Turner - Edward Horace Turner was born in 1890 in Boyne Hill, Maidenhead.  He was the elder brother of Charles William.

Charles William of the Machine Gun Corps died of wounds received in battle on 30th March 1918 in France.  Charles is buried in Duisans British Cemetery.

Edward Horace of 1st Battalion of Royal Berkshire Regiment was killed in action aged 24 on 3rd November 1914 in France.  Edward is commemorated on the Menin Gate Memorial in Belgium.

    1. They have to clean it every so often because the brass plates cause green staining. Sadly I think it goes vastly unnoticed most of the year.
