2615345 Sgt Patrick John Heffernan, Grenadier Guards

2615345 Sergeant Patrick John Heffernan of the 1st Battalion, Grenadier Guards, died on 22nd September 1944. He was 25 years old and the son of John and Lilian Heffernan of Redhill, Surrey.

The UK Roll of Honour 1939-45 records Patrick's surname (incorrectly) as Hefferwan and indicates that he was born in Surrey and living in Surrey at the time of his enlistment with the Grenadier Guards. He is buried in Uden War Cemetery in the Netherlands, grave reference 3.I.5. The War Graves Photographic Project holds a photograph of his grave.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
