Ken Anderton



Pay Respect

It is with great sadness, that we report the passing of SSgt Ken Anderton GPR at the age of 98. Ken had enlisted for service in 1939 and later volunteered for duties with the Glider Pilot Regiment. He flew on Operation Market Garden in Sep 44 and survived the Battle of Arnhem.
Ken was made a Freeman of the town of Euxton this year.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
Ken’s funeral is to be held on Friday the 1st of September, 10am at Euxton Crematorium, Charnock Richard. The family indicated that they would like to see if there were any veterans/former service personnel who would like to attend to show their respect for Ken.
If you intend to attend please inform RHQ AAC so that the family can be informed.
No flowers – donations to the local branch of the Royal British Legion.
