Charles Frederick Picton was born to Lewis and Mary Parslow on 4 October 1894 at Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. Charles was admitted to the Alexandra Orphanage in November 1900, aged 6, soon after the death of his father. He left School in December 1908, aged 14. The 1911 Census shows Charles working as a Clerk Assistant at J Barker & Co., a Department Store in Kensington, London, and living on Company premises. Charles volunteered for military service soon after the outbreak of War and joined 2nd (City of London) Battalion, (Royal Fusiliers), London Regiment. Private Parslow arrived in France to fight on the Western Front on 6 January 1915. He was killed in action on 1 July 1916; he was twenty one years old. Private Parslow is buried at the Gommecourt British Cemetery No 2 at Hebuterne, near Arras, in France. On 1 July 1916 the 56th (London) Division attacked Gommecourt and Gommecourt Wood. No. 2 Cemetery contains the graves of 101 soldiers, almost all from the 56th Division, who died in battle on that day. [Note: Am confident, but cannot establish beyond any doubt, that School C F and military C F are the same person]
