Nothing is known about Stanley Dean, except that he was living in the Shaw Heath area of Stockport when he enlisted in the town, into the local Territorial Battalion. His original number, 2544, suggests that he enlisted very soon after war was declared in August 1914.

He was killed in an action in the later weeks of the Battle of Passchendaele. As with many men from that Battle, he has no known grave and is commemorated on the nearby Memorial to the Missing.
