In October 1915 the death of Private Reginald Carter was recorded in the St Andrew’s parish magazine as follows:
We regret to have to record that Reginald Carter, A Company, 7th East Surrey Regiment, was killed in action in France. Reginald Carter was employed by the L & SWR [London and South Western Railway] Company at Oxshott Station before he enlisted at the beginning of the war. He was one of the first to come forward and offer his services to our country. Our deep sympathy goes out to his bereaved parents. RIP.
