The 1920 WW1 Roll in St Mary’s, Crich, lists ‘Pte. Fred Curzon’. No record of WW1 service has been located to confirm identification. The likely individual is a Crich-born brother of Alfred, Francis, Samuel and Walter from the Roll. Though this Fred lived in Australia from 1909, a newspaper article of July 1917 about his brother, Walter, stated that ‘[Walter] is the youngest of five brothers serving with the colours.’ If five brothers were serving, this must have included Fred.
Frederick Curzon son of John and Hannah was born in Crich. He worked as a labourer before joining the forces. He travelled to Sydney, Australia, on 10th April 1923 aboard the Esperance Bay. The ship's record states he was a quarryman aged forty-seven with an address of c/o G. W. Curzon, Opposite Church, Crich. This address is that of his brother George William Curzon
