The Luton News , 24th January 1918
Pte William Pedder

Pte William Pedder, 68552, Royal Fusiliers, was killed in action in Flanders on November 30th, 1917. He had been reported wounded and missing on that date, leading to his widow Kate appealing in The Luton News in January 1918 for any information about him.

William was the son of Albert and Harriet Pedder and a member of the family saddlery business of A. Pedder & Son, 9 Hitchin Road, Luton. He had married Kate Gertrude Bairster in Luton in 1911, Kate living at 95 Cambridge Street when she issued her appeal.

She was later living at 158 New Town Street before she remarried in 1927, her new husband being Robert Tyler.
