Thomas Steventon was the son of George and May Steventon of 62 Brook Road, Birmingham Street, Halesowen. He enlisted in the Dorsets, probably in 1917, and went to the 1st Battalion in 1918. In March they faced the German Spring Offensive near Arras and were forced back to Amiens. They came back, however, for the Advance to Victory and for the decisive Battle of St. Quentin on the 29th September. This was followed immediately by the Battle of Beaurevoir on the 3rd October. It was another crushing victory but there were many casualties on that day. They included Private Thomas Steventon who was 19 years of age. He is buried in Cerisy-Gailly Cemetery (III L 5) and commemorated on the Halesowen Memorial.
