Pte. F. Crowe
FIRST NAMES: Fred
UNIT: 4th Yorkshire Regiment
DATE OF DEATH: 13th October 1918
CEMETERY OR MEMORIAL: Glageon Communal Cemetery Extension, France
Fred Crowe was born in Northallerton.
He is recorded as having 'died' in France and Flanders, which usually means that the soldier died from disease or illness rather than from wounds or injuries received in action. The Cemetery in which he is buried was well behind the German Front line for most of the War and was used by the Germans for the burial of prisoners of war from August to October 1918. It seems certain therefore that Private Crowe died whilst in captivity, less than a month before the Armistice which ended the fighting.
