Christopher Chambers

Christopher Chambers was born in Sudbourne, son of William (farmer) and Alice Chambers, of Marlesford.

Company Sergeant Major 320135, 15th (formally 1718 Suffolk Yeomanry) Battalion, Suffolk Regiment.

Died 18/09/1918. Age 38.

Buried at Templeux-Le-Guerard British Cemetery.

The village of Templeux-Le-Guerard was taken by the British early in April 1917, lost on the 21st March 1918, and finally retaken by the 15th Suffolks of the 74th (Yeomanry) Division on the 18th September 1918.  It is highly likely that Christopher Chambers was killed during this attack.

Christopher Chambers is commorated in the churchyard at Marlesford on the headstone shown below, which is next to his parents headstone.
