Pte. A. E. Burdette Worksop Guardian 8 June 1917 Mr. Albert Burdette cab driver, 20, Dowdeswell Street, Chesterfield, late of Worksop, has been officially notified of the death in action of his son, Pte. Albert E. Burdette (19), Kings Own Light Infantry. Pte Burdette was well-known in Worksop and was a smart conducted lad. For some time he was in the employ of Mr. R. Pennington, chemist and mineral water manufacturer, Victoria Square, and later was a van man for the Worksop Co-operative Society, which position he held when he enlisted. A letter from a pal stated that Albert was missing after a big advance on May 3rd, and the official notification now confirms the worst fears of his father and mother. He was much liked by his colleagues, and the news of his death has been received with great regret. Much sympathy is expressed with his bereaved parents.
His name is commemorated on the Arras Memorial, France. Research by Colin Dannatt
