World War I
Hebert Steward

On the memorial it shows Herbert Steward, there is no one listed under that name, but there is Hebert Stewart.
Herbert lived in Billericay, lived in Ramsden Heath and enlisted in the Essex Regt (9th Batt) at Chelmsford and rose to the rank of Sergeant. He died of wounds received on the Western Front 24th August 1918 and is buried at Daours communal military extension.
The Allied advance in the spring of 1917 took the hospitals with it, and no further burials were made in the cemetery until April 1918, when the Germans recovered the ground they had lost. From April to the middle of August 1918, the extension was almost a front line cemetery. In August and September 1918, the casualty clearing stations came forward again (the 5th, 37th, 41st, 53rd, 55th and 61st) but in September, the cemetery was closed. There are now 1,231 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War buried or commemorated in Daours Communal Cemetery Extension.
Herbert Steward 17089 was a Private in the Essex Regt 5th Battn, he was wounded in August 1915 and had lived in Braintree
