LOW, FREDERICK GEORGE

Rifleman R/1088

King's Royal Rifle Corps 12th Bn.


Died 12-September-1915 aged 19

Son of George Henry and Lydia Amelia Low, of 4, Pound Cottages, Banstead, Surrey.

George had at least one brother, William Albert Low who was older.

George enlisted on the 3rd September 1914 and was stationed at home for 323 days before seeing 52 days of service.

The wartime diary of Rifleman James William "Will" Allen, 12/KRRC (courtesy of Jim Grundy) shows that on the day that George was killed, Sunday September 12th, [the enemy] kept up its reputation of being active on Sundays, and dropped about a dozen trench mortars in our trenches. About a dozen killed and injured.

Later reports showed that there were two fatalities on that day, and buried next to Frederick George Low is a John Benjamin Cox from Sutton, also of the KRRC, with a service number of R/1090, who died on the same date. His service records, and indeed his service number (just two on from George's number) show that he probably queued up with George, and joined up on the same day. The two served together, and died together in the same trench.

Grave Reference: II. C. 6.
