Alfred James Jarman,  was the third son of  Mr and Mrs J. T. Jarman of 21, New Road, Reading, and the husband of Elizabeth Gwendoline Jarman, of 14, Wood Street, Eastville, Bristol.  He is commemorated on the headstone of what is believed to be the grave of his brother and sister, number 13930.

It is not clear whether he was killed in action at Warvillers or whether he died of wounds.  The date of his death is given as August 10th 1918.   Alfred Jarman is buried at Caix British Cemetery, location I. A. 11.

Caix was occupied by British troops in March 1917 and lost in the German spring offensive in March 1918.  The village was recaptured on 8th August 1918 by Canadians.  The Cemetery was made after the Armistice by the concentration of graves from the battlefields and smaller cemeteries.  It is possible that Alfred Jarman was originally buried in Cayeux Chateau German Cemetery, as twelve cavalry men, were buried there in August 1918 by the Canadians.
