Frederick Gutteridge

Born in¬†Deenethorpe, Northamptonshire 1899, Frederick moved to Stamford in 1910 with father James (a farm labourer), mother Elizabeth and 11 siblings. In Deenethorpe they lived with Elizabeth’s brother and his wife but came to live at 12 Lumby’s Terrace, Stamford when the twelfth child was a few months old. Frederick was still at school. There is no record of him joining the armed forces.

His brother Albert, born in 1891 in Deenethorpe, enlisted in the 2nd Bedford Regiment at the beginning of the war in 1914. He was wounded at Ypres with shrapnel in his shoulder, found starving in a ruined house by German troops and taken prisoner. His arm had to be amputated at the shoulder in the Hospital of the Blessed Virgin in Cambrai.

In September 1915 he was fortunate to be part of a POW exchange and came home until the end of the war. In 1919 he was awarded £12 from the Stamford Prisoner of War Fund.
