Private Richard Charles Hyatt

Private Richard Charles Hyatt (53515) of the Manchester Regiment died on 24 September 1918. He is buried at Le Cateau Military Cemetery. He is not listed on the Hampton Wick War Memorial but his Commonwealth War Graves Commission entry refers to him as the son of Alfred Richard and Annie Hyatt (nee Ayling) of 34 Bushy Park Road, then within the postal district of Hampton Wick. We are grateful for his relative, Simon Hoare for telling us about him.

According to the biographical details in his entry in the Online WW1 War Memorial for Teddington, he was born about December 1898 in Teddington. He enlisted in Hampton whilst living at his parents. He died at the end of September 1918 as the Allies were finally pushing back the German forces.

He is commemorated on the Teddington War Memorial and on the war memorial in St Mark’s Church, Teddington. He also has an entry in the Online WW1 War memorial for Teddington.

The first phase of this Project is to gather information about the men commemorated on the Hampton Wick War Memorial who fought in the Great War, also known as World War I, WWI or the First World War.
