Maurice Meadows was born in Frampton on 31 July 1879, the son of Edwin Meadows, a farm labourer, and Lucy Silvannah née Hayward. Before the war, Maurice was a bricklayer's labourer and lived in The Street in the vicinity of Buckholdt Cottages.
Although Maurice was listed as an absent voter in 1918-19, no trace has been found of his war service other than on the plaque in the village hall.
He continued working as a bricklayer after the war, living in The Street, next door to his older brother Alfred. It was Alfred's wife, Elizabeth, who found Maurice Meadows dead in his bed on the morning of 29 December 1939. He had been well-known in the district through his sporting connections and was a regular supporter of Gloucester Rugby Football Club. His funeral service at St Mary's was attended by representatives of the Frampton and District British Legion (of which he was a member), and his coffin was covered by the Union Jack. The bearers included First World War veterans Milton Tudor and Cecil Charles James Estop.
