Albert Crumpton lived in Blackheath with his wife, Elizabeth. He volunteered for the Worcesters in 1914 and was sent to the 4th Battalion. They returned from Gallipoli in January 1916 and went to the Western Front. They fought on the Somme and from August 1917 were engaged in the third battle of Ypres. Costly advances pushed the British towards the Passchendaele ridge but in the worst conditions of mud and rain the 4th battalion attacked at Poelcappelle on the 9th October. There were 174 casualties for the Worcesters and one of the 20 men killed in action was Lance Corporal Albert Crumpton. He was 25 years of age and is commemorated on the Tyne Cot and Halesowen Memorials.
