Frederick John Stentiford  5 Nov 1889 - 30 Oct 1914



Our Guest Contributor this month is Stentiford family member, Roy Hewitt. He and his wife Pat, are members of The Western Front Association and they regularly visit World War 1 battlefields and cemeteries. After their 2001 visit, Roy produced an excellent booklet about Frederick John Stentiford (who, incidentally is not in Roy's Family Tree) which he presented to the Devon Family History Society. His initial interest has expanded and he now lectures regularly to interested groups in his locality. He can be contacted through patroy@tesco.net
