Remembering Private Frederick William Causby, Northamptonshire Regiment, 1st Battalion, Service No 20821, Casualty Number: 729457 on the 100th anniversary of his death.
Fred Causby was born in Northampton but, by the time of the 1911 census, he had moved to Rushden where he worked as a shoe packer.

He went back to France on 19th March 1918 and was killed in action on 20th April 1918, aged 41. He is commemorated on the Loos Memorial, France, Panel 91 – 93.
