I was wondering if anyone might know anything about Private Fred Lockton, who was killed at Gallipoli on 17th August 1915? We are approaching the centenary of his death and I am hoping that he can be remembered in some way at Langton Matravers, where he is named on WW1 memorial plaques in the church and village hall. 
I know that he was in the Dorsetshire Regiment and that he was 29 years of age when he married my grandmother, Charlotte Florence Corben at Langton Matravers, Dorset, on 14th January 1915. Their marriage was tragically short.
Fred was from Grantham, Lincolnshire - where i believe the Dorsetshire regiment trained. his father, Frederick Lockton Senior, had worked as a gardener in Grantham but had already died at the time of the marriage.
My grandmother did eventually re-marry Arthur Town RN, of Portsea who served on HMS Europa, which I believe was the flagship during the Gallipoli campaign.
