Notes

1901 Census - Thomas and Hannah Baker shown as living in West Tytherton. Thomas was a railway worker.

In ever loving memory of our dear loved one, Pte Thomas Baker, 2nd Wiltshire Regiment who died March 26th 1917 at Dulman, Westphalia as a prisoner of war after 2 years and 5 months in captivity, aged 26 years.

The cup was bitter, the sting severe,
To part with him, I loved so dear,
The trial hard,
But hope to meet him in heaven again.

From Mr and Mrs Hamlen and family, Wood Lane, Chippenham.

Days of sadness still come o’er us;
Secret tears often do flow.
Memory keeps our dear loved on e near us,
Though ‘tis now two years ago.

Never to be forgotten by Mr and Mrs Hamlen and Family
