Montgomery Crowe

Today, Montgomery Crowe was added to the United Kingdom Book of Remembrance which commemorates, as of this date, 361 United Kingdom casualties of the two World Wars who were not previously recorded by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. The men and women remembered here are presently commemorated solely by their database and register entry. The Commission will continue to investigate the grave location details. The Register is maintained at C.W.G.C. Head Office, Maidenhead. (Viewing by appointment only).

Montgomery, my great-uncle died 19 Jul 1918 and was the son of Montgomery and Ellen Crowe; husband of Susan Crowe of Clones, Co. Monaghan. He was 27 years old, having been born on 13 Aug 1890 at Clones and was Service Number 2421 in the 6th Battalion , Royal Irish Fusiliers.

His service/pension record survives and it confirms discharge due to TB after a period of imprisonment for desertion (the sentence was cut short presumably due to the illness) and, importantly, the illness is stated to have been aggravated by his service. Montgomery was married 18 Apr 1915 at Whitehall Street in Clones but it is unknown where he is buried. If you know, please let me know as he can have a CWGC Headstone if required.

We would like to thank the “In From the Cold Project” for adding Montgomery Crowe today. Montgomery was added as a Category Two – Personnel who had been discharged from or retired from the military before their deaths during the same qualifying periods of an injury or illness caused by or exacerbated by their service during the same qualifying period. These cases qualify only if it is PROVEN to the authorities’ satisfaction that death was service attributable.
