Sergeant 581207 Craven, RAF, was the son of Ernest and Louisa Craven of Cleveleys, Lancashire. He was killed on active service on 11th June 1940, age 25.

(It is probable that Sergeant Craven was killed on board a fairey Battle aircraft which took off from RAF Benson on 11th June 1940. The aircraft suffered an engine failure on a cross-country training flight and crashed near the airfield.)
