FORCER Richard

Richard L FORCER

Richard served in the Royal Army Service Corps as a Driver.  He died on 22nd May 1944, aged 22 and is buried at BELGRADE WAR CEMETERY,  Serbia.      

The above is the only Richard Forcer on the CWGC records.  Research into his military service show that he was born in West Hartlepool in 1922 and that his mother’s maiden name was Coleman. 

Esther Coleman married John William Forcer in 1917, registered in Hartlepool.  They can be found on the 1939 England and Wales Register living at Brooks Terrace, Clayton Heights.  From these details it is believed that this is the man named on our memorial.
