Arthur Edwin Few (c1895-1916), Lance Corporal in the 2nd Battalion the Bedfordshire Regiment (No. 27215), was killed in action in France on 6 September 1916. He has a Commonwealth War Grave in the Gorre British and Indian Cemetery in northern France. Thus his body – if ever recovered – is not buried in his family grave.

Arthur was the eldest child of Hezekiah and Louisa Few and brother of Adeline Few, all of whose deaths are recorded with him in this grave.. He was born in Norwich.
His father died when he was 11, and his mother when he was 13 years old. In 1911 he was living with his grandfather Charles Careless at 27 & 28 Broad Street and was
still at school at that time.
