If you could spare a few dollars to help with the running costs of hosting this website to keep it alive would be very much appreciated.

Thankyou from Gravesites of Tasmania in advance.

Chamberlain, Horace



He was born 1889 in Castle Gresley, Derbyshire, England to James and Rose Hannah Chamberlain (nee Pocock) who departed Hobart 8th August 1916 on board “HMAT Ballarat” with the 40th Infantry Battalion.

 Lieutenant Chamberlain died 30th March 1918 from wounds received in the field and was buried in the Doullens Communal Cemetery Extension No 1, France.

Lieut. Horace Chamberlain, who was reported in yesterday's 'Advocate' and 'Times' as having died of wounds in France, was associated with the Burnie Methodist Church during the ministry of Rev. F. J. Banian, whose assistant he was for a time. Lieut. Chamberlain enlisted at Burnie over two years ago as a private, with the late Pte. R. G. Chalk. These young men were great comrades while in Burnie, and both have died as such in a great cause._
