Arthur, 34, and Reginald Lawrence, 32, were born in Cheltenham and later emigrated with their parents to Canada. They died whilst serving with the 10th Battalion Canadian Infantry (Alberta Regiment), Canadian Expeditionary Force, at Kitcheners Wood, east of St Julien. The 10th Battalion and the 16th Battalion launched a counter-attack in an attempt to halt the German advance in the area after the infamous gas attack. Sons of Edwin and Fannie Lawrence, of 26, Victoria Mansions, Lethbridge, Alberta, they have no known graves and are commemorated on the Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing. Both are also commemorated on the Cheltenham War Memorial.

During the Second World War, the Calgary Highlanders (who perpetuate the 10th Battalion) lost brothers Theodore F. Brown and Robert Louis Brown, both killed in Normandy on the 19th of July, 1944.
