Pte Albert Taylor


Pte Albert George Taylor, 8459, 1st Battalion South Staffordshire Regiment, was killed in action at Ypres on November 7th, 1914. His widowed mother Sophia and sister Mabel were then living at 42 Collingdon Street, Luton.

He was reported as missing, but in March 1916 was inaccurately reported by the regiment's Record Office at Lichfield to be a prisoner of war at Giessen in Germany. He had initially been sent to France in the autumn of 1914, before fighting at Ypres, where his brother Frederick was captured while also fighting with the South Staffs Regiment and sent as a prisoner of war to Dulmen in Germany. Frederick survived the war.
