GRAINGER, REGINALD ALFRED
Service No: 51061
Date of Death: 28/09/1915
Regiment/Service: Royal Garrison Artillery
No. 3 Depot
Grave Reference In North-West part, near North boundary.
Cemetery DUNKIRK (CHRIST CHURCH) CHURCHYARD
Son of Thomas and Eliza Jane Grainger, of Croft Cottage, Boughton, Faversham. His brother Thomas Andrew Grainger also died in service.
Dunkirk (Christ Church) Churchyard lies mid way between Faversham and Cantebury. So not in France as one first thought. The No. 3 Depot RGA was based at Hilsea to the north of Portsmouth.
It would appear that Reginald Alfred Grainger was born in Blean, Kent (2 miles north of Cantebury) in 1894.
With thanks to Shiela W a photo of his grave can be found;
His elder brother Thomas Andrew Grainger also died in service, and is buried next to him. Thomas Andrew Grainger, a cooks mate in the Royal Navy died 6th march 1919. Both brothers are remembered on the Dunkirk (Kent) war memorial.
