From a local paper 1/7/17 =  PastorCorporal 43098, 1st Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment. Killed in action Monday, 23rd April 1917 in France & Flanders. Age 23. Son of John Hazelton, of New St., St. Neots, Hunts, and the late Jane Miriam Hazelton. Formerly 1391, Huntingdonshire Cyclist Battalion. 

He is commemorated on Arras Memorial, Pas de Calais, France. Bay 5. Hazelton, St. Neots, has received the following letter:- Whit Monday.

Dear Mr Hazelton, - I am writing to offer you and Mrs. Hazelton might most sincere sympathy on the loss of your son, and I trust you will not think my sympathy any the less sincere because of their long time which has allowed to before I write, but I have been very much on the move the last three weeks, and little opportunity for letters. Just as your son that was 'worthy' in his civil and ordinary life, so he was 'worthy' in his military life - a most willing conscientious soldier, ready for any duty. You have no doubt had details, but if not, he was killed instantaneously by an almost direct hit from a shell. Again expressing my deep sympathy, yours very truly, F. N. Butler, Lt. Colonel.
