PACEY Ernest

Known information

We do not known much about Ernest Pacey. He was the son of Frank and Annie Pacey, of Ryhall Heath, Stamford, and had been born in Swaton in Lincolnshire but the family then moved to Rutland. Ernest enlisted at Oakham and served in the depot Battalion of the Leicestershire Regiment and probably did not go abroad. We do not know how he died but he is buried in the churchyard in Ryhall, along with three other villagers who died during their service in the First World War.
