World War II
Ronald Crooks

Ronald Crooks was a Guardsman in the Grenadier Guards (service number 2611246) who died 4th Dec 1943, in the Cassino offensive in Italy.
During these early months of 1944, Cassino saw some of the fiercest fighting of the Italian campaign, the town itself and the dominating Monastery Hill proving the most stubborn obstacles encountered in the advance towards Rome. The majority of those buried in the war cemetery died in the battles during these months. There are now 4,266 Commonwealth servicemen of the Second World War buried or commemorated at Cassino War Cemetery. 284 of the burials are unidentified.
Ronald was married to Violet and lived in Brentwood.
