The Luton News , 16th August 1917

In August 1917, nearly eleven months after he was first reported wounded and missing, Guardsman Cyril Bernard Bryan, 18447, 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards, was acknowledged as presumed to have died on the battlefield on September 25th 1916.

Cyril Bryan was born in London in 1892 and came to Luton about three years before the outbreak of war to work for outfitter Mr Mares, of George Street. He had been the first member of the firm to join the Army after hostilities broke out, and had been wounded three times before going missing.

He was a member of the Hotspur Football Club, and also a cricketer. At the time of his death his parents, James and Ursula, were living in Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, after the family had spent most of their lives in Essex.
