Pte Frederick Dean


Gunner Frederick Dean, 7825, Royal Garrison Artillery, was discharged from military service in 1913 following an operation for gunshot wounds. He had served eight years as a soldier, but after war broke out he was again called up and sent to France.

However, he was not out there very long before it was found necessary to order his return to England, and for 15 weeks he lay in the 3rd London General Hospital at Wandsworth. And there he passed away at around 10.30 am on Sunday, August 6th, 1916, from a lung complication. He was aged 29.

Born in Markyate in 1887, Pte Dean lived at 44 Vernon Road, Luton, with parents Frederick and Mary Dean, and in his civilian days he was employed at Mr Richard Burley's hat factory in Old Bedford Road.

Three other sons were serving with the Colours, Ptes Joe and Harry Dean and Sapper Edward Dean.
