War Grave Wednesday - Albert Blay


"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them".
 
 
 
Albert Blay was born in 1907 in Maidenhead Berkshire to Frederick Blay, a bricklayer, and his wife Louisa Green.
 
On the 1911 Census, three year old Albert is living with his parents and older brother Frederick Archie Blay at 1 Spencers Road, Maidenhead Berkshire.
 
In 1931 Albert married Phyllis Ida Burrows in Grantham, Leicestershire
 
Sometime after the outbreak of World War II, Albert enlisted with The Cheshire Regiment.  Unfortunately Albert was to die as a result of war action on 10th May 1941.

      It will be the badge of the Cheshire Regiment that Albert served with.
