Charles RUSSELL

Unit: 1/6th Battalion CHESHIRE Regiment
Date of Death: 7 November 1918
Age: 25
Cemetery: Pont-de-Nieppe Communal Cemetery

Nothing is known about Charles' life other than the 1901 Census records him, aged 8, living in Stockport and having been born in the town. His original service number, 2825, suggests that he was not an early recruit and possibly volunteered as late as the spring/early summer of 1915.

He is recorded as having "died" (a term used in military records to usually indicate death through natural causes or from some event unconnected with war service). He is buried comparatively near to the front line, so it seems he was possibly taken ill and died before he could receive full medical attention.
