Charles Joseph Ernest William was born to Charles and Sarah Warr on 16 November 1889 at Islington in Middlesex. Following the accidental death of his father, Charles, aged 9, was admitted to the Orphan Working School on 15 November 1899. He left the School in 1904, aged 15. The 1911 Census shows Charles living in Stoke Newington, London, with his mother and four sisters, and working as a Clerk in the India Rubber trade. Charles was enlisted into 3rd/4th Battalion, Queen’s (Royal West Surrey) Regiment in 1916 and served in ”D” Company of the Battalion. Private Warr was killed in action on 6 October 1917. The timing of his death coincides with the third Battle of Ypres, which culminated in the Allied capture of Passchendaele. Private Warr is commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial, near the town of Ieper (formerly Ypres) in Belgium. The Memorial contains the names of almost 35,000 officers and men whose grave is not known. At the time of Private Warr’s death his mother was living at 43 Sandbrook Road Stoke Newington.
