Pte Joseph James Beaver, 32105, 6th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, was killed in action near Gavrelle in France on April 28th, 1917. He was aged about 24.

Although he is included on the Luton Roll of Honour but without an address, there appears to be no local Press report of his death at the time and little is known about his life in Luton. Military records say that his parents, James and Elizabeth, were living in London, where Joseph was born, but he was likely to have been living and/or working in Luton before the war.

The Beds & Herts Saturday Telegraph of November 28th, 1914, listed Joseph among recruits who had joined the 5th (Reserve) Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment in Luton during the previous week.
