James Alfred Crick, my third cousin three times removed, was born in 1896 in Kensal Rise, London. He was the second of the four sons of Charles and Hannah, nee Mallinder, and grew up in the family home in Linden Avenue. By 1911 he was listed as a dental engineer.
By 1916 he was a private in the 2nd Battalion, Royal Irish Regiment, serving in France in the Somme area. He died on 3rd September and has no known grave. He is commemorated on the Thiepval memorial.
We will remember them.
