Pte Frederick Stevens

Pte Frederick Stevens, 17371, 11th Battalion Royal Sussex Regiment, was killed in action in Flanders on September 26th, 1917. He was aged 19 and single.

A letter from a comrade to parents Frederick and Martha Annie Stevens at 49 Stuart Street, Luton, said their son was buried where he fell and a cross was erected over his grave. As Pte Stevens is commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial in Belgium, the location of the grave was presumably subsequently lost.

Frederick Stevens enlisted in February 1917 as an 18-year-old. Prior to joining up he was employed by the Hastings Street branch of the Luton Co-operative Society. He was also a member of the Chapel Street Wesleyan Sunday School.
