Harry Page was born in 1895 at Meadowlands, Forest Row. He was the son of John and Charlotte Page. In the 1901 census Harry is recorded as living at Shepherds Well (previously Highgate) and in 1911 he was recorded as living in Hartfield Road. At that time he was listed as a builder's labourer.

The entry in the Book of Remembrance held in Holy Trinity Church, Forest Row was signed by Daisy Page (widow) of Rosemary Lane, Haddenham, Berkshire. Harry had married Daisy in 1917 at Steyning, Sussex.

Private Harry Page of the 7th The Queen's Royal West Surrey Regiment was killed in action at Ferrar's Wood in France on 23 March 1918, aged 23. He is buried in the British Military Extension of Chauny Communal Cemetery in Aisne, France (Commonwealth War Graves Commission reference IWGC 8.4.22). The British extension was formed after the Armistice in 1918 specifically to hold remains collected from battlefields on the Aisne and to centralise remains from nearby smaller cemeteries. Some of the headstones therefore say 'believed to be' and some say 'buried near this spot'.
