Sgt Albert Edwin Scrivener, 4/7319, 4th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, was killed in action near Arras in France on or soon after April 23rd, 1917. He was aged 35.
No report of his death seems to have appeared in the local Press around the time, although he is commemorated on the Luton Roll of Honour where his address is given as 7 Surrey Street.
In a list of Vauxhall workers on active service which was printed in The Luton News in October 1915, Albert is included among machine shop employees then serving. He is commemorated on the Vauxhall War Memorial in Kimpton Road.
Born in Luton in 1882, Albert Scrivener was married by the Rev E. R. Mason at St Mary's Parish Church on February 25th, 1901, to Ada Beatrice Trigg. The couple had five surviving children.
