The best type of young Englishman

Wilfred Grenville-Grey was the latest Berkshire man to lose his life. He was just 20 years old, a lieutenant in the King’s Royal Rifles.


Lieutenant Wilfred Hanbury Grenville-Grey has sacrificed his life for his country. Beloved by all who knew him, endowed with rare gifts of influence athletic, musical, and altogether winning – he was the best type of what a young Englishman should be. We deeply sympathise with the family at Holmwood Lodge in their great sorrow. Holmwood Lodge and its occupants are closely bound to Ascot in affectionate regard.
A Memorial Service for Lieutenant Grey was held in All Saints Church on Friday afternoon, May 28th.
