Remembering the Fallen: on this day in 1914, Lieutenant Henry Stanley Lowe, 2nd Battalion, Worcestershire Regiment, died from wounds received a month earlier on the Western Front.
The youngest son of Reverend E.J. Lowe of Stallingborough Vicarage, Lincolnshire – and his mother’s only son - he was educated at Rugby School. In 1909 he was commissioned into the Worcestershire Regiment, and promoted to the rank of lieutenant in March of 1913.
On the 20th of September, 1914, he was grievously wounded during the Battle of the Aisne, and was moved to hospital in Paris, where sadly he passed away a month later. He is buried in the St. Germain-en-Laye Old Communal Cemetery in Yvelines, France.
Henry, from Earl’s Court Square in London, was 24 years old.
