Thomas Jarratt (sometimes written Jarrett in the documentation I have found including census data) was born in Middlesex, possibly Alperton, in 1888.
He began his professional career at Ealing as an assistant. The 1911 census records him as a boarder with James and Clara Harris at 11 Leville Road, Ealing, a clubmaker with a sports outfitter which may have predated his work at the Ealing Club.
Then he was appointed professional at the St Austell Club in Cornwall in 1913 or 1914. From here, he attested for military service and was sent to France as a Private with the 21st Bn Middlesex Regiment.
The local newspaper reports describe him as being killed in action on Easter Monday 1917. Little though it would matter to him, the military records record his death on the following day, 10 April 1917.
He left a wife and a three year old son.
His death is recorded on the Thiepval memorial and the Ealing War Memorial.
