Frederick Gordon Peasnell: Monday 20th May 1918

Frederick enlisted at Catford in the 3rd Signal Squadron, Royal Engineers.  His medal card indicates that he drowned.  He is buried in Crouy British Cemetery, Crouy-sur-Somme. Probate was granted to his widow of 320 Trinity Road for £226 16s 11d.

From the location of his grave within the cemetery, it is likely that he was buried by the 5th or 47th Casualty clearing station.  

Frederick was born in St Pancreas and was the son of William Perridge, a bricklayer.  He married Eleanor Amelia Miell of 14 Bellevue Road at SMM on 26 December 1912.  Rev Wood officiated.  She was 26 and he was 22 and gave his address as 13 Hampden Road Upper Holloway and his occupation as clerk.  His widow later moved to 107 Inderwick Road, Stroud Green.
