The upper photo shows the Newton Family headstone beside that of the Commonwealth War Grave headstone for Private Newton.
The family headstone shows that Private Newton lost his life in an accident (date given = 31 January 1915), and that two days later his father, Harry Newton, died.

Clearly the death of Private Newton precipitated a terrible family tragedy in the Newton household.
