Arthur Hampton was born in Halesowen and volunteered for the Warwicks Territorials. He joined the 1/6th Battalion in the 48th Division. They landed in France in March 1915 and spent the next two months preparing for front line service. They were in trenches near Ploegsteert in June when there was heavy shelling and active patrolling into no-man's land. Here Private Arthur Hampton was killed in action and is buried in Bailleul Communal Cemetery (I D 51) and commemorated on the Blackheath and Halesowen Memorials.
