LITTLE, Christopher Setephen. Pte G/6062 2nd Battalion Royal Sussex Regiment

Return to Yarm Roll Call

Yarm1914 research believe that Christopher Stephen killed in action on 9 September 1916 in France. He was born in Whitley Bay in 1894 first son of Christopher and Eleanor Jane Little. Christopher, a manager of an insurance office had married Eleanor Jane Richardson the previous year in Darlington. They appear to have registered his name as Christopher Stevenson Little but census records have him recorded as Stephen. Three other children were born, Dora Harvey in 1898, Donald in 1899 and Alice Mary in 1900. In 1901 the family lived with Christopher's neice Annie Kay a school governess and Lizzie Green a servant. By 1911 the family had moved south and Christopher was an Insutrance Broker living in Linthorpe and Stephen and Donald were at Boarding School in Great Ayton.

Christopher Stephen signed up in 1915 in Darlington and left for France on 31 December 1915. He died aged 22 in the Departement de la Somme, Picardie, France and remembered in Thiepval Memorial Cemetery. He is recorded ambiguously on the Yarm Grammar School memorial located in Conyers school. S. Little is recorded as dead with CS and D Little as surviving the war. There appears to be confusion between Stephen and Christopher Stevenson on the board.

His brother Donald signed up in 1916 and survived.
