Albert has no known grave but is commemorated at the Thiepval Memorial in France.

Prior to Military Service Albert was a house decorator working with his father in South London, where the family had moved to when Albert was about five years old. He was not married and had no children. Some military records mistakenly show his middle name as ďGittersĒ.Earlier civilian records suggest Albertís middle name, ďGittensĒ, came from an untraced ancestor of Fannyís father. After WWI Fanny was issued the standard circular commemorative bronze plaque of the Governmentís Memorial Plaque Factory, 54/56 Church Road, Acton, W3, London, later production type that has a batch number just behind the lion's back leg. The standard commemorative scroll from King George V that was issued with Albertís plaque is long lost.

11Frederick William Kingdon195558
Kingdon, Frederick: #23742, Private, 13th Works Battalion, Devonshire Regiment, WW1; Notes: I can find no Military Records for this soldier probably because the unit he served with was only formed in Saltash in June 1916, moved to Plymouth & in April 1917 became the 3rd Labour Battalion, staying in England for the duration of the War. His details appear on the 1919 Absent Voters List for Barnstaple Division, Parish of Heanton Punchardon, North Devon, but all research of this area & his address in Wrafton, near Braunton, Devon, has failed to identify him for the time being? This could be Frederick William Kingdon born in Barnstaple in 1897? If I am correct, this is probably Frederick William Kingdon, the son of Charles Walter Kingdon, a Coal Porter & Mason, b.1861 in South Molton, Devon (illegitimate son of Eliza Kingdon from Knowstone who eventually married James Richards a Blacksmith from Pilton) & Mary Jane ?? from Barnstaple who married in 1887 in Barnstaple; In the 1901 Census Frederick Kingdon lived with his parents in #3, Allenís Court, Litchdon Street, Barnstaple; There is a Frederick Kingdon aged 13, boarding with his brother Charles Kingdon aged 20, with a middle aged widow in Allenís Court, Litchdon Street, Barnstaple, he is a Scholar; I believe that Frederick William Kingdon Married Edith May Wakley, b.10.05.1900, in Barnstaple, Dvon in 1928; Frederick William Kingdon died in 1955, aged 58 & is buried alongside his wife Edith in the Town UnCon F Cemetery, Barnstaple, North Devon; There is no medals card on file; (Probably the Brother of Kingdon, Charles: Royal Field Artillery No: 151312 Rank: Gunner 1914-1920 WO 372/11, WW1);
