Quarter peal at Eling commemorating Fred C. Crook, died 1917.

We rang this Quarter last Sunday, after a bit or research Ruth Jackson discovered that an Eling Ringer (not a Guild Member) died 101 years ago in WWI.

Commemorating the 101st Anniversary of the death of Eling ringer Fred C Crook. Fred Crook joined the Eling band in 1905. He died on 16th July 1917. He was a gunner in the Royal Field Artillery and is commemorated in the Amara War Cemetery in Iraq. In the 1911 census he was living in Jacobs Gutter Lane, Eling, and was a carpenter. The centenary was missed as Eling was not affiliated to the W & P at the time of his death and the details have recently come to light.
1st Quarter 8.
