M.5

Grave photoAlfred Thomas Craddock Alfred Thomas Craddock was born in Bishop's Frome, Herefordshire in 1872, one of six children of Thomas and Mary Craddock (nee Perigo). He met a Stoneleigh girl, Alice Garratt, and married her on July 16th 1894. In 1901 they lived at 2, Manor Farm Cottage and had two daughters; later they moved to North Lodge and had a son. A farm labourer, Alfred enlisted at Rugby, joining the 11th Bn Royal Warwickshire Regiment. He certainly enlisted before conscription and would have been in his early forties (his exact date of birth is open to debate). The 11th Battalion, as part of the 37th Division, left for active service abroad in August 1915 and went at once to Hebuterne, just west of Bapaume in the Somme Department. They served in trenches there until June 1916, and it was here that Alfred was killed, though the cause of his death is unknown. He is buried at Bienvillers Military Cemetery, Pas de Calais, Grave reference III C2.
