Private Cyril Montague TURLAND

1/4th Northamptonshire Regiment 200708

Cyril was born in Spratton on 7 October 1898, the son of Arthur Turland, a butcher, and his wife Edith Lily. The family lived at the butcher’s shop in Middle Turn, Spratton (now Brixworth Road and still a butcher’s shop).  By 1911 when Cyril was 12 he had moved to live with his grandparents, William and Mary Turland, in Creaton.  This may well have happened in 1906 when his mother died.

Cyril signed up with the 1/4th Battalion, Northamptonshire Territorial Force aged 18 and was sent overseas.  The Battalion had fought at Gallipoli but they were withdrawn in 1916 and transferred to Egypt and Palestine, so this is where Cyril would have served.  He was demobilised on 23 July 1919 and was awarded the British War Medal and the Victory Medal.

Cyril married Sarah Evans in 1928 and died in Northampton in December 1982 aged 84.
