John Duckenfield. Sheffield, England. Killed in the Great War, 1915. K.R.R.

I have been researching men who worked for Vickers Steelworks in Sheffield England and fell in the Great War 1914-18. The result of this research and details about John Duckenfield and his family can be found on

Can anybody tell me more about John and his family. He was a member of the King's Royal Rifles and I believe he was a 'boy soldier', because I think he was just 17 when he was killed, so if we take into account time spent training, he could have been 15/16 when he enlisted. I have found the family in the 1901 census under duckinfield. Can anybody tell me more about them.

I look forward to hearing from you
