When war was declared in 1914 Clement was one of the earliest volunteers and rose to the rank of Lieutenant, 4th Battalion Leicestershire Regiment. He died in England and is buried in the Groombridge family grave in plot E4219 in Southend Cemetery, Sutton Road. He is also remembered on The Royal Leicestershire website which now includes updated information from this page and our photograph of the family grave.
