Pte William Roe, 27967, 6th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, was killed in action in Belgium on October 7th, 1917. He was aged 24.

No reports of his death seem to have been published in Luton newspapers, but other records show he was a son of Lewis (or Louis) and Emma (or Emily) Roe, of 6 Talbot Road, Luton. His cousin, Stanley John Roe (32254, 2nd Bedfords), died on the battlefield on September 20th, 1917, and is commemorated on the Luton Roll of Honour with the same address.

In the 1911 Census William's family are living at 13 North Street, Luton, with William described as a fish fryer.
