Rose & Crown

Picture source: Darkstar


 

The Rose & Crown was situated at 7 High Street. This pub is now in residential use.

 
I am Belgian and grew up near Dozinghem Military Cemetery, Westvleten, Belgium.
For many years I have been researching the cemetery so that these Dozinghem lads will not be forgotten.
I do have contacts with a lot of relatives who visit the cemetery.
In the register of the cemetery I found this:
WRIGHT, Gnr. E. W., 931413. B Bty. 291st Bde. Royal Field Artillery. Died of wounds 26th Sept., 1917. Age 19. Son of Charles Frederick and Kate Wright, of the Rose and Crown Hotel, Southminster, Essex. V. E. 12.
No doubt the loss of a very young son will have been a tragedy for this family (as for too many others).
