Excerpt from the Halton Holegate Village Book:
It was with great sorrow we heard of the death of George Grayson, son of Mr and Mrs Grayson, Fen Side. Not long ago he was home on leave and looked remarkably well. Soon after returning to France he was severely wounded, and a few days ago notice was sent to his aged parents to say that he had died in hospital. Mr and Mrs Grayson and family have the sympathy and good thoughts of all in the parish. Pray God help them to bear their burden.
