Unlike most other men commemorated on the Luton Roll of Honour, John Dunmill had little connection with the town other than as a visitor during the seven years his father had been manager of the London County & Westminster Bank on the corner of George Street and Chapel Street.

John Dunmill, born in Maidstone, Kent, in 1885, was the only son of Alfred Thomas and Mary Elizabeth Dunmill, who in 1911 were living in London. He had joined the same bank as his father in 1902 and was a clerk at Winchester, Hants, before joining up.

His early education was gained at Tonbridge Commercial School. where he won a scholarship, and finished at Watford Grammar School, the Hertfordshire town where his father was then working.

He married Londoner Maggie Roberts at St Saviour's Church, Paddington, on April 30th, 1912.
