The “newest” CWGC gave in the cemetery Fred Baron

Until recently the Commonwealth War Grave Commission (CWGC) was showing that Fred Baron who died August 16, 1920 was recorded on the Brookwood Memorial, Surrey.

In early 2013 The Friends of Darwen Cemetery was contacted by the In From The Cold Project and we were able to confirm that Fred was buried in Darwen Cemetery on August 20, 1920.

He was the son of John and Elizabeth Baron and had emigrated to Canada in 1908 and on the outbreak of the war enlisted in Canadian Forestry Corp, 126 Bn (2nd Quebec Regiment). He died in Lancaster.
The CWGC has now been updated and shows his final resting place as Darwen Cemetery.
