Aubrey Hill was from a long line of builders who were in Islington from the early 19th century – the Hill of the company Higgs and Hill is another branch of the family. Aubrey himself was as an architect/builder in London when he joined up at the age of 42. He died in France on the 24th October 1918 during the outbreak of 'Spanish Flu'.

There is a memorial to Captain Hill in St James's Church, Croxton, Cambridgeshire.

(Information received from John Carnaby)

We are currently uncertain as to the connection between Captain Hill and this village in Cambridgeshire.......he and all his family were from London.
