Pre War

Alfred Speller was born in Albury in 1883, son of Edward and Isabella Speller. In 1891 his father was a carpenter, living at Gravesend, Albury. In 1901 his father was recorder as a carpenter and undertaker, and Alfred, now shown as Frederick, was a brew

Wartime Service

Frederick enlisted at Kingston on Thames into the East Surrey Regt, but later transferred to the Border Regt. Nothing more known of his service, but he was a prisoner of war in Hamburg when he died. Five British soldiers are shown to have died in 4 day

Additional Information

After his death he was recorded as the husband of Kate N. Speller, of 9, Dunbar Rd., New Malden, Surrey. Presumably not on Albury Memorial because he had moved away and his parents had also moved to Stanstead Abbots and so his was forgotten by Albury,
