Unfortunately I was unable to trace any family of PO. Fairclough even though they lived only a few miles from where I live. But judging by the names on the gravestone of PO. Fairclough it seems that his father died at an early age and he also lost a younger brother.

From the only information that I have about him, it is possible that his mother may also have died as the CWGC website list his grandmother as next of kin (see below).

PO. Faircloughs grave is a family one and not the usual CWGC grave and headstone and as it seems there is no family left to care for this grave as it has deteriorated to an extremely bad state of disrepair. The headstone has been laid flat and the grave has sunken quite badly.

However, by adding his name to this website and showing some photographs of his grave, I hope I have helped in paying back some of the debt that we owe many of the men and women like him.
