Flashback Friday - War Grave - Private Lawrence Cyril Winstone

**Originally posted 14th November 2012**

"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".
Lawrence Cyril Winstone was born in 1900 in Maidenhead, Berkshire to Frederick Thomas Winstone, a general labourer, and his wife Alice Mary Burton.

In 1901 Lawrence appears on the Census aged just six months old, living with his parents and elder siblings at 68 Reform Road, Maidenhead, Berkshire.

By 1911 the yen year old school boy Lawrence was living at 52 Waldeck Terrace, Reform Road, Maidenhead, Berkshire.
In 1918 Lawrence enlisted with the Royal Warickshire Regiment, 5th Battalion.  Sadly only 3 months into service Lawrence was wounded.  Lawrence was then sent to 16 Northumberland Voluntary Auxiliary Hospital (Later Ashington General Infirmary), where he succumbed to his injuries on 11th October 1918, just one month before the Great War ended.
