|Sjt Samuel Clayton KIA 09/09/1914 aged
Son of Walter, he was born in 1883 in Rushden Northamptonshire and by 1901 was in the army barracks at Northampton and by the outbreak of the first Worl War he had been in the army for 15 years. He was the first victim of Rushden.
Originally, The grave wears only a mention "a Serjeant of the Great War -Suffolk Regiment", and Samuel was commemorated by name on the La Ferte sous Jouarre Memorial.
Some evidence came to light in 1997 and the CWGC discovered that he had a headstone commemorating in this cemetery.
After further investigation, it was agreed that this was the grave of Samuel, hence the special memorial headstone "Believed to be".
His brother, Pte Walter Henry Clayton is dead 14/07/1916 aged 19 and is comemorated at Thiepval Memorial.
