Cecil Frederick George Hoye (1900-1919)
Cecil was born in 1900 in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.  He was the third of eleven children born to Frederick Charles Hoye (1873-1946) and Elizabeth Hoye (née Mowlam) (1872-1930).  The family lived at 5 York Street, Cambridge.  Frederick enlisted as Private 26874, 3rd Battalion, East Kent Regiment (The Buffs) during the war.  He died on 19 July 1919, aged 19 at the Military Hospital in Cork, Ireland.  As he had died ‘at home’ his body was transferred back to Cambridge and buried in his home town.  Cecil was also commemorated on the Cambridge Guildhall War Memorial.
