Hull Pals Memorial Post. PRIVATE FRED KENDREW 10/1130. Born in Sutton-on-Hull in 1894, Fred was the sixth of seven children to Henry and Mary Ann Kendrew of 14 Russell Street, Hull. A Rullyman by trade, Fred enlisted at City Hall on 7th January 1914 originally joining the 10th Battalion East Yorkshire Regiment, 'The Commercials', 1st Hull Pals. Poor health dogged his army life, and it was an operation on his adenoids that had him declared unfit to travel to Egypt with the rest of the battalion. Bronchitis delayed his arrival in France still further, but he eventually arrived at Etaples on 3rd April 1916 where he was transferred to the 11th Battalion. Wounded in the legs during the attack on Oppy Wood, Fred was evacuated to 41st Casualty Clearing Station where he died of wounds on 8th May 1917. He is buried at Duisans British Cemetery; a young man of 22.
