Henry William Fairbrass
Royal Army Service Corp
Service number M/41329

Died on the 24th October 1919.

Buried in Northiam Cemetery, Northiam, East Sussex - grave Reference: 407.

The CWGC site only shows "Private H.W. Fairbrass" - I obtained his first names from the "Roll of Honour - Sussex - Northiam" website - this site normally gives a few more details for the enlisted men who died, but unfortunately in this case, apart from his Christian name, there isn't anything else.

Henry William Fairbrass is buried in Northiam.  He is also commemorated on the Northiam War Memorial
