Nothing is known about Private Brown's personal life other than he was born in Stockport and enlisted there. He was killed in an attack only a couple weeks before the end of the war described here. He would have originally been buried in small plot very near to where he fell. After the war, these small burial grounds were closed and the bodies "concentrated" in larger cemeteries.
