I was alerted to this possible non comm KIA by the following snippet in the Hull Daily Mail of 10 June 1915:

I would appreciate someone checking the CWGC just in case I am missing the blindingly obvious.

MIC and Soldiers Effects return below:

I've tried multiple searches on CWGC but I can't find him. No death certificate or entry in SDGW either, so far as I can see.

There is a will available for him on the gov.com site.

Hi

Looks like a non comm. Agree with above no trace CWGC. 1911 census checks out mother Maria same as Soldiers' Effects. Wilson shown as a Shop Assistant.

Regards Barry

1901 census shows the family as Anderson but all 15 pages of CWGC W.Anderson NO TRACE.

I can't find him either.

Interestingly, there are nine casualties from the Brigade that are listed on CWGC for the 24th May 1915. It looks like two of them were recently added to the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial.

Curiously

I cannot find a Wilson Anderton or a Wilson Alderson on the overseas death indexes

having died overseas on the date given

That's to say he may be there its just that I cannot find him

It's not the first one I've seen missing from the overseas registers but where the army were clear he was dead (as per the gratuity pay out). It looks like a specific part of the reporting process broke down.

Thanks to all for your searches and comments.

I will bump this over to the IFCP to deal with.
