Pte George Summerlin, 30601, 7th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, was killed in action near Arras on May 3rd, 1917. He was aged 26.

No newspaper report of his death appears to have been published around the time, but in the 1911 Census he is shown living with parents George and Jane Summerlin at 15 Stuart Street, Luton. Also living there was his wife Alice Maud (nee Hill), whom George had married in 1907, and their three children at that time - Leslie, Reginald and Wilfred. Records suggest they later had two daughters.

George is commemorated on the Arras Memorial for soldiers with no known grave, and also on the Luton Roll of Honour with an address at 9 Dunstable Place, Luton, where Alice was living after the war.
