Sylvester Loveridge lived with his wife, Fanny, at 28 High Street, Halesowen. He enlisted in the artillery and on the assumption that he was not a pre-war regular soldier he would have reached 40 before enlistment. He was sent as a driver to the field artillery and in 1918 he was with C Battery, 84th Army Brigade, in the 18th Division. On the 22nd October the last great battle of the war was about to begin with the Allied forces advancing towards the German frontier. Artillery were a vital preparation for any attack but Driver Sylvester Loveridge was killed on the day the attack started. He was 44 years of age and is buried in Roisel Cemetery (I D 22) and commemorated on the Halesowen Memorial.
