Further information

Born in Ryde in 1883, Cecil Harry Barrett later lived at 45 Trafalgar Road, Carisbrooke (1891 Census).

Cecil Barrett joined the Dorset Regiment some time before the 1914-18 War and was sent to France on 16 August 1914. From the In Memoriam card, we deduce that he was reported missing soon after, but his date of death is recorded as 22 Oct 1914 on the CWGC and "Soldiers died in the Great War" records.

In addition to his name being commemorated at the County War Memorial, Panel 1, his name appears on the Newport Borough War memorial and the St Paul's, Barton Memorial panel.

His brother, Ernest Boyd Barrett also died in the Great War.

He is buried at Hautrage Military Cemetery, Saint-Ghislain, Hainaut, Belgium.
