There's no indication on this family memorial on whether he's actually buried in Nab Wood Cemetery, Shipley, but he's not listed among the twenty-seven Northern Cyclist Battalion casualties, among the cemetery's casualties, or under his own name, on CWGC. Could he be a non-commemoration?

CPL. NRN. CYCLISTS BTT.

SON OF SAMUEL AND

LLT seems to show that this battalion was home based. I could not find a MIC. He could have served at home and died after being discharged of an illness unconnected with war service. Death Cert may shed more light.

Not on Soldiers Died in the Great War (1914-1919). Maybe the flu pandemic was the cause.

Thanks, guys. The "injured in September 1918" is interesting but could be through either war service or an injury at home, plus his death might not have received a mention in the local press at that time.

The memorial referred to is in the T.A. Barracks, I'll see if I can make contact with someone there.
