He was deployed with the UK contingent of NATO forces in Afghanistan.

LCpl Bancroft was killed by small arms fire in the Nad-e Ali district of Helmand province. He was part of a security cordon that was providing protection for a meeting between local elders and ISAF and Afghan National Army troops when they came under attack.

Aged 25, from Burnley. LCpl Bancroft enlisted in September 2001 and previously served two tours of duty in Iraq. He was a Section Second in Command in 1 Platoon and had been in Afghanistan for five months. Described as an exceptional soldier and outstanding leader, he was a mentor to the younger members of his platoon. To his friends, he was an unforgettable character, full of life and an infectious sense of humour.

LCpl Bancroft leaves behind his parents Tony and Sheila, brothers Paul and Leighton, sister Toni, girlfriend Lauren O'Hara, other relatives and many friends. His family said, "We will always remember Jordan loving a challenge, in particular outdoor pursuits. He was a keen snow skier and often skied for the Regiment. He loved all watersports and took any opportunity to ride a jet ski or drive a speed boat. We will miss Jordan so much and it will leave a huge hole in all our lives. You will always be in our hearts, Jordan."

Funeral with full military honours was held on September 10, 2010 at All Saints Church, Earby, Lancashire.
