Warnham Warbler article - Nov 2011 - by Sue Overton
On 28th January 1915, Private Charles F (Fred) Hayler of the RASC died of Scarlet Fever in Aldershot. (His name seems to be misspelt on the memorials.) This death is recorded in the Parish Magazine by the vicar. ‘Only a few weeks ago he came to tell us that he had joined the Army Service Corps. He was a good lad, liked by all who knew him. Full of hope and promise, he was so happy in the thought that he was going to do something for his country.’ He was in our choir as a boy, and he loved his church. Fred Hayler was the elder son of Charles and Jane Hayler. Charles was a cowman and the family lived in Church Street. Fred was 23 when he died and had joined up very soon after the outbreak of war.
