The Luton News , 15th November 1917
Sgt Stanley Edward George Day

Sgt Stanley Edward George Day, 235790, 24th (Tyneside Irish) Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers, was killed in action in Belgium on October 15th, 1917.

A former Bedfordshire Territorial (No. 3098), the 23-year-old was mobilised with the Northumberlands at the outbreak of war. He did not go to the Front until September 17th, 1917, and survived only for a month, killed "in the performance of his duty," as Capt James McIntyre wrote to widow Emily at 27 Chase Street, Luton.

Little was recorded about Stanley in a report of his death in The Luton News on November 15th, 1917. Other records indicate that he had married Emily Groom at St Paul's Church, Luton, on October 21st, 1912, and they probably had two children. Emily remarried in 1920.

The 1911 Census shows Stanley, older sister Minnie and younger brother Albert living with their widowed mother at 35 Chase Street. Stanley was then described as an iron moulder.
