Frederick Charles Burden was born in Stour Row, Shaftesbury, Dorset, on 17 Mar 1890 and baptised at All Saints Church, Stour Row, on 1 Jun 1890 the son of Frank Burden and Alice Burden (nee Stokes).  He lived his early life in Main Road, Stour Row until by 1901 had moved with the family to Wincombe, Donhead St. Mary, Wiltshire.  According to family records he served in WW1 but no definitive information can be found. (NB: There is another Frank Charles Burden who served with the East Kent Regiment (The Buffs) and later with the Royal Air Force but research is insufficient to confirm this as the same person - certainly the approximate place and date of birth given on the service records do not agree.)  He married Dorothy Gertrude Ettie Isaacs in Hartley Witney, Hampshire, on 24 May 1919 and on 22 Apr 1922 sailed for Australia initially settling the the Tin Mining area Riverina, New South Wales.  He died on 16 Feb 1969 in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales.  His brothers, Harry John Burden and Samuel Job Burden, also served in the conflict.
