Frederick Measures was born at Gaulby, Leicestershire around 1886, the son of George and Sarah Measures. He had two brothers and two sisters. Shortly before the war he was working as an ironstone quarryman and lodging with the Winterton family at Burley on the Hill when he decided to join the army and enlisted with the 2nd Battalion Leicestershire Regiment at Melton Mowbray. Fred was killed in the Battle of Loos and is remembered on panel 43 of the Loos Memorial and also in Burley on the Hill church. His age must have been 29 or 30. His father, George Measures and stepmother Annie, were later recorded as living in Billesdon, Leicestershire.
