Sgt Albert James "Bert" Beaumont, 9/8002, attached to 27th Training Reserve Battalion, died on December 12th, 1916, following several operations for internal complaints, including appendicitis, at hospital in St Albans.

Born in Markyate on July 21st, 1892, he lived his whole life in the village until he enlisted in the Beds Regiment (13391) at Luton in September 1914. He was the son of High Street, Markyate, butcher Frederick Beaumont and had worked in the family business.

At over 6ft tall, he was also the tallest man in the village and earned promotion in the Army through being a good shot.

His funeral was held on December 19th at St John's Churchyard in Markyate. Four fellow sergeants and representatives of the Loyal Oddfellows Lodge were among the mourners.

He is commemorated on the Rolls of Honour of both Markyate and Luton.
