Pre War

Born in 1890 in Much Hadham, Hertfordshire son of Joseph and Elizabeth (Muncey) Burton. He was living in Much Hadham in 1901 and in 1911 when he was a harness maker with his father. Joseph was a harness maker and had his exemption from enlisting withdrawn in July 1918 and, so he was enlisted in Bedford.

Wartime Service

He died three months after enlisting and while still in England with the Suffolk Regiment and died of pneumonia in Felixstowe. He is buried in Felixstowe, but he is also named on a family grave in St Andrew's Churchyard, Much Hadham. It is not known if his body lies there or at the Felixstowe Cemetery.

Additional Information

SDITGW records his birthplace as Natal, South Africa.
