14618128 Private Stanley Lenard Maurice Parsley of the 2nd Battalion, Essex Regiment died on the 21st October 1944. He was 23 years old and the son of Thomas Walter and Florence Maud Parsley of Waltham Abbey, Essex.

Stanley Parsley is buried in Brussels Town Cemetery. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission notes that, "Most of the Second World War casualties buried in the town cemetery died on lines of communication duties after the liberation of Brussels at the beginning of September 1944, but a few date from the brief period that the BEF spent in Belgium in May 1940."

The War Graves Photographic Project has a photo of Stanley's grave.

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