Saunders Frederick Corporal Buffs

Frederick Saunders was my grandfathers father, ( grandfather is in his 93 rd year) he is on the war memorial in
Whitstable, he is buried in France. He never saw his son.

Saunders William Charles Buffs

William Charles was my grandfathers uncle, he is buried in All saints graveyard Whitstable.

William Charles died in the hospital, of illness,sleeping sickness, it is interesting that his nickname was sleepy Saunders,
and he did serve in the Boer war, so perhaps this is where the illness which killed him was first contracted. Both on war
memorial.

Grandad now has the male DNA profile for this line. Happy to share with any descendants.

Kate was born posthumously, as her father Edward died (in a diving accident) the quarter before her birth, leaving
Christiana with 7 children under the age of 11 years. She married Adley Putwain 3 years later.
