THE REVEREND ARMAR EDWARD ACTON
ARMY CHAPLAINS' DEPARTMENT
4TH NOVEMBER 1917 AGE 28
BURIED: WIMEREUX COMMUNAL CEMETERY, FRANCE
The Graves Register states that the Reverend Armar Acton 'died of wounds (gas)' but this doesn't really tie in with the inscription on his headstone, which says he was 'fatally wounded'. Another account therefore seems to be more accurate. According to this, Acton was visiting the front line on 26 October when he was injured by shrapnel, which broke his knee. Initially this didn't seem a very serious wound but then infection set in, his leg had to be amputated and he died on 4 November.
