Private R E Dannatt - 4th Training Reserve BN. Service No: TR5/13684

Pte Dannatt died on the 26th February 1917. His grave is unusual as it has two headstones. A Commonwealth War Graves Commission headstone and a family headstone behind that. The family headstone reads:

“In loving memory of Robert Edmund Dannatt, the beloved son of Sarah and Thomas Dannatt, 4th T.R.B., who died at Rugeley Camp, February 26th 1917, aged 18 years. A noble life laid down.”

Private Dannatt’s parents are also buried in the North Warren Cemetery.
