Additional Information

*1 Believed that Joseph and Mary are the correct parents based on his age. In June 1997 Broxbourne borough Council received a suggestion from the Chairman of Goffs Oak Community Association to name roads to commemorate the men who lost their lives in the two world wars that are displayed on the Goffs Oak War Memorial. It was decided that these names should be used for the large development in Hammond Street Road This soldier was one of them, Burgess Close is named in his memory.
