Not much has been found about this victim. He does not appear to have been a Newmarket native, his earliest Newmarket appearance can be linked to his wife in the 1939 Register.

It seems he may have married Minnie Eslick CLAYTON in Wandsworth in 1937. The sole occupant of Red House Albion Street, Newmarket in the 1939 register was a married woman, Minnie E LITTLE. Neither are found in the 1936 Newmarket Directory.
