Notes

No Secretts in Sussex in 1911. Alfred was a builder and he had all his children baptized in Warnham in 1915. He was appointed as a Parish Guardian in 1914.

July 1917 Warnham Parish Magazine – During the past month QM Sgt Secrett has been made Lt.Quartermaster. He was called to take over the duties of Quartermaster while the Battalion was on the Somme. He has been mentioned in despatches "for exceptionally good work and devotion to duty. He has displayed the greatest zeal, energy and ability in the performance of his duties, and has rendered valuable service to his Battalion." We are glad to record this extract and congratulate him on earning such a tribute. [A A Secrett lived at The Banks on Bailing Hill at about this time.)
