Saturday 13th September 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of the first Ramsey resident during the course of the first world war.
As a mark of respect the Chairman of the Ramsey Town Commissioners, Captain Nigel Malpass, and a representative of the Royal British Legion, will attend at the Cenotaph in Ramsey at 9:00am in the morning – Saturday 13th September – to place a simple wooden remembrance cross bearing a photograph, name and date of loss of Ramsey resident Alfred Corlett, following which a few moments of reflection will be observed.
Private Alfred Corlett served as a Driver in the Royal Field Artillery and died on service on 13th September 1914, aged 31 years. He was the son of Margaret Corlett of 10 Templar Terrace, Ramsey, and the late Thomas Corlett. His brother Ceasar Corlett also served in the Royal Field Artillery and tragically also lost his life during the conflict on 30th March 1918 aged 29 years.
