The Luton News , 7th June 1917
Pte George Hull


Pte George Hull, 15287, 6th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, was killed in action in France some time between April 9th and 12th, 1917. He was 28 and single from Upper Sundon, and had worked at the Sundon Cement and Lime Works before enlisting.

He was first reported to be missing on April 9th but it was not until early June that his mother Anne had confirmation that George had been killed in action.

George Hull enlisted in the Bedfordshire Regiment at the outbreak of war, and in July 1915 proceeded to France. In 1916 he came back to England suffering from acute pleurisy, and was at home for about three months. He returned to France in January 1917.

After the first official notification that her older brother was missing, Mary Ann Hull, who was working as a cook for hat manufacturer Albert Buckingham at 'Sunnydale,' New Bedford Road, Luton, appealed in the Luton News for any information regarding George's whereabouts, in the hope that other soldiers had mentioned him in their letters home.

Upper Sundon-born George is commemorated on the Sundon Village War Memorial and the Sundon Cement and Lime Works Memorial, now attached to the wall of St Mary's Church, Lower Sundon.
