Fred Portman


Submitted by Joy Lewis.

Fred Portman was the brother of my grandfather, George Portman. He was born in Chapeltown and worked as a miner before joining the army. He was married to Annie Westerman and when he died he left her with four young sons.
Born in January 1884 at Chapeltown, Sheffield, Fred was Sergeant #18820 13th Bn. York & Lancs. He died in France on 24/10/1918.
He is buried in the South East Corner, Leers Communal Cemetery and is commemorated on the war memorial in Chapeltown Park. I attach a photo of his headstone in Leers Communal Cemetery.
