Letter from one of Private Schoolden's Officers, Lieutenant E. Bygott:

He had been with us a long time, and had done some excellent work as a company signaller. He was killed on the 22nd March by, I believe, a machine gun bullet. The fighting at that time was very close and as all the other company officers are casualties, I am afraid I can give you no further particulars. The Huns now hold the ground where your son fell, so I am afraid it is impossible to get any kind of photograph or sketch of his grave.
In ever-loving memory of Jesse D. Schoolden,
who made the supreme sacrifice in the Great War, 1914-1919.
From father, mother and family.
Ever remembered.

Baptist Church and Sunday School, Chapel Street, Hyde.
In ever-loving memory of Edwin Eyre, M.M., Harold W. Lockyear, Harold Slater,
John S. Pursglove, Jesse D. Schoolden, Andrew Leech, Fred Moores, and William Booth.
