The Family Tree

Thomas Moden
1878-1918

Thomas was the third of the eleven known children of John Thomas Moden and his wife Charity (née Barrett) of Wittering, Cambridgeshire, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, and eventually, Easton on the Hill, Northamptonshire, England.

Whilst his father worked as a farm foreman at the time of the 1911 census, Thomas is noted as 'farm horseman'.

When he was about 33 years old, the First World War began. He enlisted with Lincolnshire Regiment (service number 15274) and later with The Loyal North Lancashire Regiment (service number 40283), where he joined the 2nd Battalion.

Service records are yet to be located, but it is noted that at the time of his death in July 1918, he was Lance-Corporal. His youngest brother Herbert, had been killed in action a year earlier.

It is not yet known whether Thomas married or had any children.

His bravery and life is commemorated in both his home village of Easton on the Hill, and in France.
