Joseph Seaton was killed near the bridge between Casteren and Netersel. Initially buried at the churchyard of the Roman Catholic church of Bergeijk.

Joseph left two young sons my father 5 years old and his brother 3 years and a widow. He was from Stepney in East London and had worked before the war on the railway. I have been to the cemetery many times and was proud to take my father to the bridge at Casteren only a couple years back before his own death only a year ago. He was immensely proud of his father and had a great respect for the Dutch people.

Grandson Spencer Seaton and his son at the grave in 2017.
