I think there is a possibility that Frederick Hamilton should have a CWGC commemoration. I'm trying to find proof but it's tricky!
I need to be able to prove that he was either still a serving soldier when he died or he contracted his illness while serving.
So far all I have are hints:
- the death certificate lists his occupation as Corporal 1/5th King's Liverpool Regiment (boot salesman) he was a boot salesman before enlisting.
- the pension form shows that his widow was granted a pension under articles 11 & 12 which state that he either died while a serving soldier or contracted his illness while a serving soldier... but those statements aren't actually on the form.
- the family grave inscription suggests he died a soldier
- the fact that he died in a military hospital
