Lindale 1914 CWGC burial

Postby plbramham » Tue Jul 24, 2012 4:45 pm

In St Paul's churchyard, Lindale, is a very early WW1 (21st October 1914), CWGC burial for Pte.C. Keith 1856 4th Btn. Kings Own Royal (Lancaster) Regiment, presumably a regular as he has a very low service number. Maybe wounded on Mons retreat and died at home?
Note:Lindale (with an “e”) near Grange over Sands is not to be confused with the other close by village of by “Lindal in Furness” (see my other memorial posting) near Ulverston
