Private Frederick Norman Ayles

Private Frederick Norman AylesPrivate Frederick Ayles was an old boy of Aylesbury Road School.  His mother (a widow) lived on Simpson Road, Bromley.

He had joined the army in 1902 and later served with the South Lancashire Regiment. He went to France on 7th October 1914, and consequently must have seen some of the severest fighting.

He was killed in action on the 13th November 1914.

His brother Ernest Walter Ayles joined the Army Service Corps in October 1914  (two month prior to the report of Frederick’s death) and was in training at the time.

In July 1919, Private Ayles was commemorated at a memorial service at Bromley Parish Church.  He was later named on the Aylesbury Road School War Memorial and tablet (1921) and added to the Bromley War Memorial in 1922/23.
