Son of the late Charles George Fowler. Born in London.

Buried in Luton Church Burial Ground (Crawley Green Road).

Charles Fowler tragically took his own life in the Waller Street Baths, Luton, in April 1916. The coroners report speculates that the stress of military service contributed to his decision.

There are many casulties in war, not all are directly caused by enemy action. We will remember them.

He was buried with full military honours.
