Thank you to Jane Anthony for this research.
Born in 1898, the eldest son of Edwin and Catherine (nee Wood) Fuller of the Brickyard Wotton. Edwin’s father had been born in Leatherhead, and his mother, in Abinger. In 1911 there were 6 children living in the household, with Edwin being the oldest. There was also an uncle living in the house. The family seems to have been routed in this area of Surrey with various members of both the Fuller and Wood family being born in Abinger, Shere, Westcott and Dorking. Both sides of the family worked in agriculture, Edwin was an under cowman, his brother a groom and father-in-law Wood a shepherd. At the time of the 1911 census the younger Edwin was still at school.
He enlisted in the Queens Royal West Surrey Regiment (G4751) at Guildford. He was killed on 25 September 1917 in Belgium, aged 18. His body was later buried at the Hooge Crater Cemetery. A war gratuity of £12 was granted to his mother.
