  • Notes 
    • The AngloBoerWar website gives two records, both in Kitchener's Fighting Scouts.

      1. A J Worcester no. 26936: Demise: Died of disease - enteric fever 15 Apr 1901
      Place: Klipkraal

      2. Arthur John Worcester no. 844: Served in 1st KFS. Joined Cape Town 14 Jan 01 died of wounds 15 Apr 01 Graaff Reinet
      Source: Nominal roll in WO127.

      It seems inconceivable that these two people are not the same person. [1]


    • The only UK record which appears to match is a baptism record for an Arthur Worcester, baptised 25 Jul 1881 at St Giles, Camberwell. Born in the workhouse to mother Maria Worcester. [4]
