This man was with the 175th Tunnelling Coy RE and died 5th September 1915. Entries in CWGC and SDGW but unable to trace his name on a UK war memorial.

Possibilities:

Born: Brandon Colliery; 1901 Census: Shildon; resided: Southchurch; enlisted: London

Various web searches have been unproductive so would appreciate help from, perhaps, someone with a good knowledge of Co Durham.

Look forward to hearing from you, Thank you!

Noticed you mentioned South Church, which is Bishop Auckland, Shildon is only about a mile away. At St Andrews Church, South Church, Bishop Auckland is a war memorial and under the Royal Engineers is T. Foster which is possibly your man. I have attached a photogrpah of the war memorial and the column with his name.

Main photograph of memorial did not come out with my first message, I have attached the photograph with this reply. Unfortunately it was a overcast day when I took the photograph.
