11th February 1921

Hubert Lindsay Kearne, formerly a Private with the Devonshire Regiment, died on 11th February 1921 having drowned at Hastings. The coroner recorded a verdict of death by drowning, declaring that there was insufficient evidence as to how the young man came to be in the water.

Hubert Lindsay Kearne was born in Brampton, Huntingdonshire in 1892 and was the younger of the two sons of Samuel Lindsay Kearne (1860-1938), who came from Liverpool, and his wife Emily Ann (née Robinson), who was born in London. The couple married in Cockermouth in 1889 and also had an elder son, Geoffrey Norman Keane (1888-1982), who was born in Blackpool.
