Tag Archives: Henry Stanley

Carshalton page added

Carshalton is one of the shorter tower pages that will appear, with just two men. However the fact that one of those two, Rifleman Frank Pickering, died gives it one of the highest death rates of all the towers. The Carshalton War Memorial has already been well researched by Andy Arnold – I recomend visiting his website about the memorial (previously referred to on the Benhilton tower page). The other man Henry Stanley is one of those whose identification is still rather tentative. Listed only as H Stanley on the original roll, Henry seems the best candidate in the censuses, but there is no other verification of his military service.
