Frederick Henry Evans
Henry Evans was born in 1889 in Barrow in Furness, Lancashire. In
the 1891 census he was living with his parents William and Sarah
Evans in Lord Street, Barrow in Furness. By 1901 his father had
died and he was living with his mother and siblings at Rawlinson
Street, Barrow. In 1911 he was with two of his siblings at Barque
Street, Barrow, perhaps his mother had also died.
For him to appear on the Chellaston memorial, he must have moved
to the area after 1911, perhaps to work in the local industries.
No service records have been found for Frederick.
Frederick joined the Army Service Corps, the unsung heroes of the

At some point Frederick was posted to India where he died on the
13th October 1918 and is buried in Bangalore (Hosur Road Cemetery)
