Alfred Boot, inscribed as Richard on the Halesowen Memorial, was born at Hill and lived with his wife, Emma, at 56 John Street, Blackheath. He was probably a pre-war volunteer for the Worcesters and served in the 1/7th Battalion. They arrived in France on the 31st March 1915 and on the 19th April they took over front line trenches for the first time at Ploegsteert Wood. They suffered their first fatality on that date and it was Private Alfred Boot. He was 24 years of age and is buried in Rifle House Cemetery (III G 5) and commemorated on the Blackheath and Halesowen Memorials.
