Alfred Bowler

Grave of his parents Grave of 'Nat' Bowler

Alfred Bowler also appears on the Little Marlow War Memorial alongside his cousin John Bowler. The parents of both boys lived along Fern Lane at one time but John's parents later moved to Marlow. John's father was Hezekiah Bowler the brother of Amos Bowler, Alfred's father. Hezekiah and Amos were the sons of Joshua & Mary (nee Ridgley) from Speen in Bucks.
Fern Lane Cemetery, Little Marlow, has a number of Bowler graves. Alfred's parents are bured there (first photo) and also another relative George Alfred Sidney Bowler (second photo) better known as Sid or Nat, who wrote about the village in verse - see his book 'Frackle Mosaic' in the library.
Bowler relatives still live in the village today, with others living not far away.
