This notice was posted in the Uttoxeter Advertiser in July 1918, [2a] shortly after his death

In Loving Memory of our dear Son and Brother, Pte. Harry Avery, 1st Royal West Kents, who died of wounds received in action on July 6, 1918, aged 20 years.

No one knows how much we miss him

None but aching hearts can tell.

Earth has lost him, Heaven has gained him,

Jesus has done all things well.

- From his sorrowing Father and Mother, Sisters and Brothers.

AVERY. In Loving Memory of our Beloved Son and Brother, Harry, who died of wounds in France on July 6, 1918, aged 20.

But for ever in our aching hearts

Your dear memory we will keep.
