Notes
Arthur was born in May 1876 to Henry and Mary, in Burton-on-Trent, England. He had four sisters, one older and three younger. At the age of 18 he married Helena Carter in London. The couple had five children before moving to Kitchener (then Berlin) in 1906, to a home on Water Street. They had two more children after arriving in Canada. Arthur was a member of the Church of England and joined the Church of the Holy Saviour in Waterloo after moving to Canada. He worked as a tinsmith, but on December 28, 1915, he became a soldier, enlisting with the 118th battalion. He was shipped to England in January 1917 and from there he was sent to France to join the 1st Battalion on the frontlines. Almost two years to the day of his enlistment, Arthur was killed in the trenches. The December 9 entry in his battalion's war diary reads: "Night very dark. Weather Raining. Casualties 4 O.R. Killed." He was survived by Helena, and his seven children - the eldest two, Arthur Montague and Frederick, also fought in the war but returned home safely. Arthur is buried in Sucrerie Cemetery, in Albain-St. Nazaire, France, with 380 fellow soldiers. *Note: His soldier card says enlisted Dec 15, but his attestation papers say Dec 28. It seems his medical examination took place on the 15th but all his documents list his actual enlistment date as the 28th.
