Classification: Query
Surnames: Sefton
Can someone help me get hold of the obituary
for Pte Harry Sefton whose photo is attached.
I believe one was printed in the Calgary Herald.

Private Harry Sefton

Regimental number 2270337
50th Battalion Canadian Infantry (Alberta Regiment)

Birth: May 4, 1894, Blackburn, England
Died: Sep 28, 1918

Burial region: Haynecourt British Cemetery, Nord France
Plot: II. B. 14.
Grave site: 3 3/4 Miles North West of Cambrai, France
Residence: Calgary, Alta


He appears on the 1916 census as follows

34 Calgary East, Alberta, Canada


Harry Sefton M 22y England
wife Ethel Sefton F 27y England

I have literally just found out that he emigrated to Canada c 1912 after I posted his picture trying to get regimental details.

Thanks
