Private Owen Allen Burrluck
10th Battalion Royal West Kents
Died age 23, 2 months after being medically discharged from the army due to wounds inflicted by gas attack on The Western Front. 10th Battalion were at many of the major battles on The Western Front.
Owen Allen Burrluck was born out of wedlock to an Eliza Burrluck and was bought up by his grandparents – even though Eliza married a Thomas Drury soon after his birth, he never appeared to live with her according to the census returns.
He names her as his next of kin on his service records but his Uncle Albert collects his effects.
