Remembered Today:

16775 Private Thomas Haynes 6/7TH BN Royal Scots Fusiliers


Recommended Posts

Good evening 


I am looking on any information on Private Thomas Haynes, Royal Scots Fusiliers. A friend came across his headstone at Coylton Cemetery in Ayrshire. He died on the 7th of October 1917. 

Ive tried searching for any information on him to no avail ... all i came across was an auction site selling his WW1 Victory medal :( >>>medal here <<<< 


Thanks for your help

Medal Roll & Card show that Thomas joined the 7th RSF in France in October 1915.

Soldiers effects show that he died of disease in the Royal Victoria Hospital at Netley. His widow Margaret.

He (I think) married Margaret Burns in Glasgow in 1907.

Born 1878 in Coylton.

1911 in Coylton Thomas 33, Margaret 30, Margaret 2, Thomas,1.

1901 in Coylton Thomas 23 Coal Miner (Hewer) Fa.Thomas Mo. Elizabeth.

The effects records show he had 33 months qualifying service at the time of his death.
