Harry Hatley

Harry Hatley was a private who enlisted in the Essex Regt 11th Battn, service number 23806. He was born in Felsted, lived in Mountnessing and enlisted at Warley. Harry was killed in action, near Arras 23rd September 1916, and is buried in the Guard's cemetery, Lesboeufs.
At the time of the Armistice, the cemetery consisted of only 40 graves (now Plot I), mainly those of officers and men of the 2nd Grenadier Guards who died on 25 September 1916, but it was very greatly increased when graves were brought in from the battlefields and small cemeteries round Lesboeufs.
There are now 3,136 casualties of the First World War buried or commemorated in this cemetery. 1,643 of the burials are unidentified but there are special memorials to 83 soldiers known or believed to be buried among them.
